The Abbey Hill community is working harder than ever!
Abbey Hill Academy is open and we actively encourage all children to attend school.
We continue to do what we have always done in terms of academic achievement; we look at what our children can do right now and build from there. Our students have come back to school with fantastic attitudes to learning.
We want our children to remain in school, so please continue to support our community by conducting testing twice weekly with your child. This will help keep us all safe.
Please continue to follow government guidance out of school hours to keep our community safe.

I must extend my thanks to schools across the Borough for all the work they have done to set up testing and support a safe return to school.
School attendance has remained very high this week and it’s clear to me that all our schools are very keen to ensure children are back for their education and to catch-up with their friends.
We are supporting schools as they follow the national guidance on in-school testing and comply with the requirement for secondary school pupils to wear a face mask.
We are also reminding people without symptoms who live with (or are in a childcare or support bubble with) children who go to school/college that the national advice is to undertake twice-weekly testing to help keep our schools safe.
You can find details of the testing options available at the bottom of our testing web page www.stockton.gov.uk/coronavirus/testing.
