Pupils “safe and sound” after climbing on school rooftop

TWO youngsters were spotted on the roof of the Continuum School in Wisbech on Tuesday morning, but a spokesman insisted there was “no worries and no issues.”

The school at Old Sessions House in Somers Road is attended by students with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. All have been excluded from, or are unable to attend mainstream education.

The spokesman said the youngsters had come down from the roof, and were “safe and sound.”

An independent day school for students aged 17-19 and with fees of �31,950, the school was judged to be good in all areas at its most recent Ofsted inspection.

Ofsted said: “The Continuum School provides a good quality of education and meets its aims. Parents, carers and placing authorities express a high level of satisfaction with the school.
