CRHS students asked to study at home

Year nine and 10 pupils impacted by staff absence

Students at Castle Rushen High School are being told to study from home again due to staff absence.

Year 10 pupils should not attend school tomorrow (27 January) and year nine are asked not to attend on Friday (28 January).

Remote learning will be provided where possible.

Year 12 students have also experienced disruption today due to staff having to cover lessons for younger year groups at short notice.

Headteacher Keith Winstanley says absences within the staffing pool have risen 'significantly' this week and it's not yet clear if this will also impact next week.

He has apologised and said the school will try to provide as much notice as possible of any further disruption.
