Archway School's sixth form has reopened today after a student tested positive for Covid-19.

The school's sixth formers were told to work from home yesterday after it emerged a student had received a positive test over the weekend.

In a letter to parents issued on Sunday, headteacher Kieron Smith said: "We have been advised that there has been a confirmed case of Covid-19 within the sixth form.

"As a precaution and because a close contact list has yet to be established, on Monday, October 12, all sixth form students shall need to work from home and shall not be allowed into school.

"At present, the school is only aware of one other member of the sixth form that has been asked to isolate, as a result of being deemed a close contact.

"Work has begun on establishing further close contacts."

The school's sixth formers have been allowed back into classes today after a close contact list was established.

A spokeswoman for the school said: "We have identified some close contacts and they are being asked to isolate and learn from home until next week."
