It is with great regret that I have to report that we will remain closed tomorrow (Friday 3rd Feb) due to heating/water issues. 

The school's heating system was originally installed nearly 30 years ago and has been suffering many technical issues througout this winter. Sadly, yesterday it suffered catastrophic failures leaving the school without heating or hot water. 

Cumbria County Council have informed me that due to the size and complexity of replacing the boiler/heating system/pipework this will have to take place in the summer holidays and is being scheduled.

In the meantime their engineers are working hard to provide the school with temporary heating and hot water and this work should be completed by Monday. There will also be major disruption to the school's mains water supply tomorrow whilst they install new systems.

I apologise for the inconvenience that this causes but rest assured I am working hard to ensure we are open and safe as soon as possible.
