Due to the extremely cold weather forecast for overnight, there maybe a considerable amount of snow and ice on the site and in the approaches around school tomorrow. Our site staff are unable to guarantee that they can make our site safe - we will therefore be closed on Friday 2nd March 2018. We apologise for this inconvenience and thank you for your continued support.


This is the place to look to find out if schools have been closed due to bad weather or an emergency.

Cold Weather - Should the weather deteriorate, and a decision be made to close the School, the safety of the pupils and staff is paramount; a decision to close would only be made on the grounds of Health and Safety.
