Student Face Covering and Testing

Following a significant increase in COVID-19 cases in young people across the borough this week, Telford & Wrekin, on the advice of the local Director of Public Health, have recommended that secondary schools reintroduce face coverings for staff and pupils in Year 7 upwards in classrooms and in communal areas.

All secondary schools in the Learning Community Trust, including HLC Secondary, are following this recommendation.  As of Monday 9th July 2021, all students and staff will be expected to wear a face covering at all times in the school building.

We are really sorry for the need to bring in these measures but, as always, your child’s health and wellbeing is our primary concern.

We also ask that you are vigilant about completing your lateral flow tests twice a week for all secondary age children and inform us of the results via the link below.
