Coronavirus Closure

Following government guidelines, Sir Jonathan North is now closed. Beauchamp College in Oadby will be open to children of key workers at Sir Jonathan North, Judgemeadow  and Brocks Hill Primary School who have registered for a place.

Your daughter will need to have these with her every day:

  • Two black pens, a green and a purple pen, a scientific calculator, pencils, rubber, a 30cm ruler, glue stick, felt tips, highlighters and pencil sharpener will be needed for many lessons.
  • A strong school bag in which to carry books and equipment.
  • Money for snacks or lunch to load onto her card (we are in the process of changing to an online system).
