Today's Power Cut-UPDATE

posted 11 Sep 2017, 11:26 by Simon Bush

Hello Parents

First of all a big thank you for being so understanding today! 

We lost power around 11:10 am this morning which triggered the fire alarm. We immediately called an electrician who could not establish the issue in our building. We then had the National Grid with us who have identified the problem as being with our sub station on 21st Avenue. They managed to get the power back on at 6:30pm tonight and have temporarily repaired it. More work will be needed to fix the fault permanently and more investigation is needed. 

Obviously we are keen to keep the school open during this time and we are hoping to have back up generators while it is repaired. This will enable us to stay open.

We will keep you updated on progress and thank you in advance for your patience.

Mr Bush
