The death of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd

“Here at The Ripley Academy, I wish to express our sadness on hearing the news of the death of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  As our longest-reigning monarch, she was a constant source of continuity which has united us all in an ever-changing world.  As sovereign to the UK and head of the Commonwealth for more than 70 years, she leaves an extraordinary legacy of service and dedication.  Our thoughts and sympathies are with the Royal Family at this sad time.

During the national period of mourning, we will be ceasing social media posts and any non-urgent communication until the day of her Majesty's funeral."
