Dear Parents/Carers,

I am writing to thank you for your understanding following our school closure today (Monday 5th March). Although we had carried out a full site inspection over the weekend and again early this morning, problems with leaks unfolded during the morning which meant that our boilers and heating stopped functioning and that our water supply was also affected. We therefore had no option but to close the school at later notice than we would have liked.

Our site team and engineers have been working on the problems throughout the day today, all issues have now been resolved so we intend to open fully as normal at 9.15am on Tuesday 6th March. We look forward to welcoming students back!

If, for any reason, you are not receiving text alerts from us, please e-mail me at and I will ensure your details are updated. Remember too that we regularly update our Facebook and Twitter pages with school news, these can be accessed through our website but also at and

Please contact me if you have any further questions/queries regarding our closure today.


Yours faithfully,


Andrew Wakefield

Vice Principal
