Queen Elizabeth II

It is with deep sadness that we write on behalf of the students, school staff and governing body at Brentside High School to express our sincere condolences on the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. 

Her Majesty was an exceptional public servant who gave her life to the service of the Country and the Commonwealth. She will be remembered as a humble, wise, caring and devoted Sovereign. 

We are aware that this sad and significant event may be difficult for some of our young people, and we have devoted tutor time today to reflecting, in a supported context, on the significance of The Queen’s life. 

Following the announcement by King Charles III at his proclamation, the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II will take place on Monday, 19 September. This day has been designated a Bank Holiday and so all schools, including Brentside High School, will be closed for the day on Monday, 19 September.

School resumes as normal on Tuesday, 20 September.
