Due to worsening conditions over the last few hours we have taken the decision to close Eaton Bank Academy tomorrow, Friday 2nd March. Although our site team managed to clear the site today, drifting snow and increasing winds are causing hazards on many routes and this is going to make it extremely difficult for pupils and staff to get into school in the morning safely. It also seems increasingly likely that these very high winds will continue tomorrow and this may be combined with more snow. We regret the loss of learning time and the inconvenience that this closure will cause to families. Please be assured that we have reached this decision only after careful consideration of the risks to our community.
