The MP for North Wiltshire, James Gray visited Malmesbury School on Friday to hear about the students’ experiences during the Covid-19 outbreak and see how they found remote learning. Mr Gray was given a tour by Heads Tim Gilson and John Barrett to see how the current arrangements are working, and met with students in Years 7 and 10 to hear how they had found the experience. The school was also able to highlight the plans that they have in place for the new term, when the whole school will be returning.  

James Gray said:

“I was extremely impressed with the excellent arrangements and plans put in place by the school to deal with the coronavirus outbreak and the hard work shown by the members of staff. The students all had a very positive attitude and had clearly worked hard, despite these very difficult circumstances.

I know that teachers and parents alike will no doubt be looking forward to schools opening fully in September, and it is great to see that Malmesbury School have put all the necessary measures in place to ensure a safe return. I have heard from a number of constituents over the lockdown period who were also very impressed by the help provided by the school and I am very grateful for their hard work during this time.”
