The Abbey School has been closed for one day only - today Thursday 29th November, as a precaution because of a potential fault with the fire alarm system identified during a routine check by the engineers.
As Headteacher David Jackson explained:
Following a comprehensive risk assessment and having sought advice we have had to take the decision to close the school as the fire alarm system was not working as it should. The safety of all our students and staff is of the utmost importance."
The issue with the alarm is being resolved and the school will reopen as usual for students and staff on Friday 30th November.
