School Closures

If the school is closed for any emergency reason, we will send a text message and an email message to all the parent/carer details that we hold on our student records. It is therefore very important that you keep us up to date with any changes to your mobile phone number or email address. Information will also be available on the school’s website and an answerphone message will be left on the main telephone number (0161 861 9727). In addition, for short notice closures due to severe weather, local radio stations will be informed.
