Covid 19

We recognise that this is a very difficult and worrying time for everyone in our community. Our Schools are now teaching remotely. The Harpur Trust team are also working remotely to provide support to our schools as well as to the wider community. You can contact us by phone and email. We are receiving a high volume of enquiries but we will endeavour to respond as quickly as we can. To avoid any delays please send any documentation by email rather than by post. Thank you.
