St Mary Magdalene Academy: “Pandemic Times”

Back to Projects

This is St. Mary Magdalene Academy school in Islington. This school, together with all the other schools in the UK was closed according to the government guidelines during most of the academic year 2020-21.  The photographs were taken during the third lockdown and just before the school re-opened at the beginning of March. Staff put together a huge effort in setting up a Covid test centre in the school since January 2021.  It was used to test teachers, other members of staff and students just before they went back to school when the school re-opened on March 9th. On the testing days, parents volunteered to help with the running of the test.  In the photographs you see the school while still closed and staff, parents and some of the students from year 7, year 8 and year 12.
