Our thoughts are with the frontline NHS workers at St George's and, of course, the staff at all our local GP surgeries who are coping under great strain. A small contribution we have been able to make is to supply 124 pairs of IPS laboratory safety spectacles. Thank you to all.
Some solace to be drawn from Firefly's announcement that this morning's operational difficulties covered Europe, Middle East and Africa not just SW London and delighted to say it's now up and running. We also hope to build on our success with Zoom today with Firefly tomorrow...
In line with HM Government's directive, IPS will close after teaching ends this afternoon. We shall activate contingency plans to enable distance learning throughout the period of closure and remain in contact with pupils and parents to support them in whatever ways we can.
It was such a thrill to hear 14 great PVI IGCSE Music compositions played and sung by five top professional musicians this week. Well done to all the pupils involved and many thanks to: @nik_preston, @AbiPJP, Nick Tomalin, @AndyGJonesMusic and Paul Robinson for all your work. https://t.co/FcutOAaPh0
