Fire damage to Woodborough School

During the evening of 17th September our school building was damaged by fire. The damage has resulted in the loss of two classrooms, the staff room and some other areas of the school. Our primary focus is the safety, welfare and education of our pupils and we are currently working hard to ensure continuity of education provision. The school will be closed during the week commencing 20th September.

We have been overwhelmed with offers of support from the community and we sincerely thank each of you for your kind words and deeds. Our school is not defined by the buildings, it is defined by our culture, and we are confident that culture will see us through this period of adversity. We will rebuild and continue to provide high calibre education. The Woodborough magic will prevail!

The events of the evening of 17th were shocking to witness. We want to say a sincere thank you to all the emergency services who attended the fire; they risked their lives to minimize the damage to our buildings and adjoining property. We are sincerely grateful to them.
