01 March - School Closure

01 March 2018 - School Closed.

As a direct result of the poor weather conditions, and the prediction of more snow , the school is CLOSED on 01 March.

We continue to follow the local conditions: https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2634558

I thought it would be wiser to inform you tonight rather than tomorrow that I have made the decision to close the school for a second day. The snow and freezing conditions are worse now than this morning and it is clear that this situation will not improve over night. The temperature will remain below freezing this evening and through the night and travel to and from school presents a high risk.

I realise that it is Year 9 Parents’ Evening and will inform you of the rearranged date when we return.

I have not taken the decision lightly and must apologise for the inconvenience this will cause. The safety and welfare of staff and students is my primary consideration.

We are aware that class/school closures inconvenience parents. There is work for students available following this link.

Yours sincerely

Andrew Stones, Headteacher
