* VE Day Early Bank Holiday, 8th May 2020 (all parents)

The Government has moved the early May Bank Holiday so that VE Day itself will fall on a bank holiday. Therefore the Dean Close Foundation has moved its Exeat to match these dates. Please note the following important information:

  • The school will close for Exeat on Thursday 7th May at 4.15pm
  • School will re-open for boarding pupils on Sunday 10th May (after 6.00pm)

School will expect all pupils in school for lessons on Monday 11th May.
