Covid-19 Testing at AGFS

Thursday 07 January 2021

Dear Parents, Carers and Staff,

The government has asked secondary schools across England to set up COVID-19 testing for students and staff as they return to school in person. The process is relatively straight forward and approximately 30 AGFS staff have already received training to ensure the process runs smoothly. Our aim will be to get as many students and staff tested as possible before they return to face-to-face teaching, helping us to identify the virus early and reduce transmission rates. Thereafter, students will only need a test if they are identified as a ‘close contact’. We support this government initiative as it will help to provide a further layer of security, on top of the existing strict safety and hygiene measures that are already in place across our school.

Testing of students is optional, but strongly encouraged. All information on testing at AGFS can be found by clicking on the links below. If you wish to volunteer to support with testing at AGFS please email:
