There is no online school tomorrow (Friday 22nd May 2020) as this has been given as a holiday for the remaining few days of Ramadan and Eid. It is also half-term from next week Monday 25th May 2020 until Friday 29th May 2020, so there will also be no school during this week either.
Therefore, today is the last day of school and we will recommence on Monday 1st June 2020. Furthermore, as Ramadan will be over, our timings will go back to the usual timetable, so lessons will begin at 8:45 and continue through to 3pm once more.
We hope you have a blessed last few days of Ramadan and a wonderful Eid.
——————————————————————————————UPDATES CONCERNING COVID-19 PANDEMIC
• SCHOOL SITE CLOSURE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lady Aisha Academy will now be operating solely online either through live sessions or pre-recorded teaching sessons, until further notice. Lessons for all pupils will continue to run daily as per the timetable from 8:45am – 3:00pm, and all content will be made accessible via their school accounts. All students are expected to log in daily and punctually, and participate in all their lessons.
• PROSPECTIVE APPLICANTS AND ADMISSIONS: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lady Aisha Academy has currently closed its school site and has moved all operations online, therefore we will most likely be holding entrance tests, interviews and registrations online or via email and phone calls, as opposed to in person. Please continue to send in your applications, as other than moving online, the school is running as usual.
Please note that our contingency plan for September, should it be not possible for us to return to the school site at the beginning of the academic year, is to continue to operate online (as we are now) until it is deemed safe for us to re-open again.

In case of really bad weather such as heavy snow, our most likely course of action will be that the school will remain open and running, and students should come in when they can, as soon as possible.
Thank you.Healthy Eating
We have decided to start a healthy eating scheme as we are concerned about the number of sweets, crisps and sugary drinks the pupils consume. The above mentioned foods will not be allowed on school premises except on Wednesdays.
