School reopens

School closed Friday 6th July 2018

July 2018

Due to the water leak in Sinfin we have no alternative but to close the school today (Friday 6th July). We have no running water on-site, so we are unable to provide water, food and toilet facilities.

Severn Trent are working on this issue which we hope will be resolved by Monday. Please keep checking our website and social media pages for updates.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.
