Arden will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday 12th December 2017
Due to the continuing adverse weather conditions Arden will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday 12th December 2017, to both students and staff.
The conditions of the school site, despite having had a snow plough on site this afternoon and significant gritting, continues to pose a major health and safety risk and the decision has, therefore, been made for the school to remain closed tomorrow. The enormity of the amount of snow and the size of our site are causing problems. The current condition of the pathways around the school are unsafe. The weather forecast for this evening and much of tomorrow is for sub-zero temperatures which will make road conditions hazardous. We will have further snow clearance taking place throughout the day on Tuesday and if the weather on Tuesday evening brings warmer conditions we will expect to be open on Wednesday.
Regretfully, the Upper School Concert that was scheduled for tomorrow evening will have to be postponed to a later date and The Swimming Gala, scheduled to take place tomorrow, has already been cancelled by the organisers.
Please check Twitter, Facebook and the school website for updates.
We apologise for this disruption and thank you for your understanding.
