Sent on behalf of the Custos
On behalf of the Governing Body I would like to express our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused by the School having to close today.
I would like to provide you with an update following an incident with our boiler in the cellar. At around 6.30 am the fire alarms went off and the Fire Service attended. Whilst there wasn’t a fire as such, the boiler and flue had become damaged resulting in pungent smoke and debris.
Electricians and engineers have been on site since early this morning trying to restore the heating, lighting and hot water to the building. The electricity supply is safe and active, but unfortunately we have been unable to restore heating in time for tomorrow. Therefore, with deep regret, the school will remain closed until after half term. Any parent wishing to collect their child’s belongings will be able to access the school from 07:30 am until 4:40 pm tomorrow.
This situation, whilst very regrettable, is and has been totally unavoidable and we thank you for your understanding.
We look forward to welcoming you all back on Monday 24 February.
