Queen Elizabeth II

School will be closed for the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on Monday 19th September 2022.

Following the extremely sad news last week regarding the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the government has determined that the State Funeral will be on Monday 19th September. This will be a bank holiday. Woodlane High School will therefore be closed for the duration of that day.

The country is now officially in a period of national mourning until the end of the state funeral on Monday 19th September 2022. However, this week there should be no interruption to attendance and school will be open as normal. The government guidance states ‘for schools and further education settings normal attendance is expected throughout the National Mourning period, other than the bank holiday’. 

Woodlane will celebrate the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II through a special assembly on Monday 12th September 2022, and a theme day on Friday 16th September 2022.
