Dear Parents,

Unfortunately the school will be closed for day pupils tomorrow (19th March 2018).
Given the uncertainty about travelling conditions, we are not able to guarantee operating school buses safely. Furthermore we are also not yet able to attend to the pathways and car parks, which are covered by snow and ice.

We are very sorry about this frustrating news, but hopefully it will be the last disruptive weather of the winter. We expect the school to be open as usual on Tuesday 20th March.

Work will be emailed to your children by subject staff.
