Due to on-going issues with our phone lines, all incoming calls to the school are being diverted to the following temporary mobile number:

As we are down to one line of incoming telephone communication, you may experience a delay when contacting the school. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by this.

BT have confirmed that this fault is part of a wider area fault which requires a cable to be dug up and replaced. The work is being scheduled and we will keep you updated with progress.

Thank you once again for your continuing patience and understanding while this issue is resolved.
