Welcome to the Minster School's COVID 19 testing page. 

You will be aware that schools have been asked to introduce testing for COVID-19 to support the reduction in rates of infection and help with national efforts to curb the spread of the virus.  We are pleased to support this effort for the benefit of our school community. 

This testing falls into 3 categories:

Mass testing - students returning to school should be tested twice 3-5 days apart.

Serial testing staff - staff should be tested weekly.

Serial testing close contacts - students or staff identified as close contacts may receive daily tests so that they can continue to attend school and the community can be protected from infection. 

The tests are voluntary but we would encourage your participation to support good health at school and also for families at home.


See below for our parent guide to testing.
