Thursday 4th and Friday 5th December
As you are already aware, a number of days in each school year are assigned to staff training and are crucial in supporting our work to continue to raise standards of attainment and care for all students.
I am writing to inform you that Holyhead’s next Professional Development days will take place on Thursday 4th and Friday 5th December when the school will be closed to students.
Students will be expected to return to Holyhead for a prompt start to lessons at 8.45am on Monday 8th I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your support as we move the school on to even greater achievements.
