Some Wrexham schools closed tomorrow

Ahead of tomorrow's predicted heavy snow, Wrexham Council has announced three of its schools - which may be attended by pupils from this area - will be either closed or partially closed tomorrow (Friday):

Ysgol Rhiwabon High School, Ruabon - Partially Closed

The school is closed for the following reason(s):
  • Insufficient staff cover
  • Complications as a result of inclement weather
Further Information: The school will be closed on Friday January 18th 2013 to all students and staff due to the risk of severe weather and the potential travel disruption. This decision has been taken under advice from the Met office and travel organisations and is to ensure the safety of our students and staff, many of whom travel some distance. The school will be open for those students who have an external English Literature and Maths exam. tomorrow. The school anticipates being open on Monday as normal but please check the Wrexham Council and school website for further updates over the weekend. Thank you all for your assistance and support Alun Harding Headteacher

St Christopher's School, Wrexham - Closed

Further Information: In view of the high possibility that the weather tomorrow will be extremely poor I have no alternative than on Health and Safety grounds to close St Christopher’s. As you are aware many of our students and staff live along way from school. I can not guarantee tomorrow that taxies, buses etc will be able to get to school safely. As it has already started to snow this afternoon I have no alternative than to close the school tomorrow. I am extremely sorry to have to close the school but the weather predictions for tomorrow are grave for this area. Yours sincerely Maxine Pittaway Head Teacher

St Josephs Catholic & Anglican High Sch, Wrexham - Closed

The school is closed for the following reason(s):
  • Complications as a result of inclement weather
Further Information: The school is closed fully tomorrow, Friday 18th January. Our decision is based on the Met.Office forecast of adverse weather, including blizzard conditions. Our school’s priority is young people’s safety. The school is fully closed and so no pupil should attempt to travel to school, even if their individual journey seems straightforward. We have sent all parents and carers a letter and advised each Year Group about work they can undertake, and we thank you for your support in this. Please refer to our letter home for details about how you can further monitor the situation over the weekend. Thank you so much for your support and understanding as Parents and Carers
