Jan 2010 - School opens early due to snow

With the big freeze looking set to continue, parents of boarders at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School are worried that they might not be able to get their children to school on Sunday evening ready for their first day on Monday. Forecasts are showing that the weather might take a turn for the worse so Headmaster Paul Spencer Ellis has taken the unusual step of opening the school a day early. Boarders can now return to school from Saturday afternoon.

Mr Spencer Ellis comments “We are happy to help parents, many of whom will be travelling long distances to bring their children to school. They now have the flexibility to drop their children off during the weekend when the weather looks best for their journey. I am hugely grateful to staff who have rallied round and given up a day’s holiday so that boarders can come to school from Saturday.”

Parents and pupils are being advised to come with warm clothes and sensible shoes as there is still a lot of snow on the site.
