Neale-Wade Academy in March will open as normal tomorrow after being closed today due to a gas leak.

Gas engineers have been investigating the cause today and say the leak has been dealt with.

Executive principal Jason Wing, who was on site early waiting for engineers to arrive, said: “We are pleased to announce that the school will open as normal tomorrow (Wednesday October 10).

“Gas engineers have investigated the leak at the school and confirmed that the issue is safe and has been fully resolved.

“We’d like to thank all parents, students and members of staff for their understanding of the school’s closure today.”
