Class of 2021 Leavers BBQ - POSTPONED

Reading School, Erleigh Road, Reading

Thursday 08 Jul 2021

17:00 - 19:00 BST

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced on Monday 14th June that we have not met all four tests for proceeding with Step 4.  It is considered that more time for the vaccination programme to protect people from the Coronavirus is necessary, in light of the new Delta variant of the virus.  The revised date was set  for 19th July 2021.

It is therefore necessary to keep the current protective measures in place until the end of the summer term.   We regret to inform you, that the Class of 2021 Leavers BBQ has been postponed until further notice.  I am sure that you share in our disappointment and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.    

We will continue to review the situation on an ongoing basis as we look into alternative options to run the events at a later date or possibly virtually.

We believe that this is a proportionate, preventative and pragmatic response taking into account professional advice from our Compliance Officer, liaising with other Headteachers and Government Guidance, including from the Department for Education.

Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic we have always sought to put the safety and wellbeing of all members of our community at the heart of our decisions and our actions. We are determined that we will continue throughout the rest of the Summer Term.

In the meantime, if you have any further queries, please email the Society Office at

Thank you your continued support and understanding.
