On Monday we rehearsed a “Lockdown” procedure that gets everyone inside the nearest building (as opposed to a Fire Drill, which gets everyone outside). We told the children that we may use this “lockdown” procedure in the case of a swarm of bees or a cloud of dense smoke coming from a fire, perhaps at Gatwick. The children were remarkably quick at getting indoors, with lots of Prep School children ending up in the Nursery or Pre-Prep as they were the closest buildings!

Another practice will take place later this term, without staff or children being aware!
