School Closure 1st February 2019

After a great deal of thought and consideration, we have taken the decision to close the school to students and staff, today Friday 1st February 2019, with the exception of Year 11 students taking the Health and Social Care Public Examination.  We do this with great regret and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.

The snowfall has been steady all night and it will take a great deal of time to prepare the site to ensure it is safe for students and staff.  We are particularly mindful of the falling temperatures and the possibility of ice on the paths and car parks throughout the school site. In addition, there is great concern that given the far reaching areas in which staff and students live, that there was a strong possibility that accidents could take place on the way to and from school. Driving conditions will be very difficult and we do not want anyone to take any unnecessary risks. 

We will ensure the website, Twitter and Facebook pages are updated with new information as and when it is known.  

Thank you for your understanding.
