“This means that the planned Year 6 open evening has been rescheduled to Thursday 12th October.

“Anglian Water have been working all day to try to resolve the situation, but unfortunately we still have no water to the site.

“We have been very clear to them that continued closure of the college is not an option and that we expect them to provide us with water so that we can reopen on Wednesday morning.

“Again, I apologise for the inconvenience, but the wellbeing of students and staff must be our priority.”
