State Funeral for the Queen
The news of the death of the Queen last week was a significant moment for all of us. On Friday morning all the Schools and Colleges in the Trust showed their respect to mark the beginning of the national period of mourning in various ways. Pupils and students reflected on the Queens’ life and in particular over 70 years, her service to our nation.
Following the announced date of the state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II, the Trust and each of its Schools and Colleges will close to mark this historic occasion on Monday 19th September 2022. The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust will be open as usual over the next week through the national mourning period.
We understand that during this period of mourning, some of our students may experience their own sense of loss and grief both for the Queen and for people close to them that are no longer with us. If you believe your child may need some additional support at this time please do not hesitate to contact their form tutor.
