    Cross Country Event at Hertswood Academy

    7 November 2022 (by Amy Salsbury (admin))

    A number of you have raised concerns over the weekend ahead of our cross country event today, following some information posted on social media regarding Hertswood Academy.  

    Please find below the official response from the school and confirmation that the event will be going ahead.

    "We would like to reassure all parents that the school is aware of the rumour that has been spread via social media in the last few days. The school takes all threats towards student safety very seriously, this incident was fully investigated by the school and the police, and appropriate action has already been taken.

    The safety of the students and staff was not at risk at any point during this incident, and there is no reason whatsoever for the date mentioned to be any different to any other school day. As far as the school is concerned the matter is now closed.Thank you to the vast majority of our community who use social media responsibly and have rightly shared their concerns with us over the rumour being spread on social media in the last few days"
