MGS Action on COVID-19
Firstly, I would like to reassure you that all of the action that we as a school have already taken has been on the advice of Public Health England, the NHS and the Government; and that this action has been both considered and measured to ensure we do not over react or be alarmist – school has essentially continued as normal.
Cyber attack- UPDATE
Following on from the successful phishing attack on MGS last week, we have had additional accounts compromised over this last weekend.
The decision was taken to temporarily remove access for all student accounts until we could implement additional security measures to ensure that the system was both safe to use and from being misused.
We have today enlisted the help of a cyber security company with specific skills in securing Office 365 environments.
Ongoing cyber attacks on MGS systems
Please be advised the following further hacking on student email accouts we have taken the decision to block access for all student users.
We will review what action is required with a view to re-enabling account access as soon as possible.

D Day 75 5-6th June 2019
D Day 75
June the 6th 1944, without a doubt one of the most important dates in modern history.
It marks the date on which almost 160.000 Allied troops stormed the Normandy beaches as part of Operation Overlord, to start the liberation of Western-Europe.
The assault was preceded on 5th June by 24.000 troops who parachuted in or came by glider.
The most important aircraft to support the airborne assault was the Douglas C-47 Skytrains (Dakotas).
Over 800 Dakotas were involved in the transport of the men across the English Channel.
This Wednesday, 5th June marks the 75th anniversary of the preparation phase of the invasion. This will probably be the last large scale commemoration of this event.
Daks over Normandy is an event to honour those who paid so much to liberate Europe.....
