We are pleased to inform you that the PCR result has confirmed that the previous result was a false positive. All pupils in Rowling and Hargreaves can now stop isolating. Have a lovely Easter.


We will update you on Twitter and on the website as soon as we hear anything. We ask that parents check these sites regularly and circulate it on your WhatsApp groups. Kind Regards, Team HPAS


Dear Families, Unfortunately, we still have not received the results of the PCR test to confirm the LFD positive result that was reported on Tuesday. Therefore, children in Rowling and Hargreaves should continue to self-isolate.
