A Suffolk secondary school may face temporary closure this Friday due to issues with heating.

Stowmarket High School released a statement on social media today, revealing that due to problems with the school's boilers there is currently no heating in the building.

The school are bringing measures into place for tomorrow, including allowing students to wear coats inside the classroom, but could be forced to close on Friday if the situation isn't sorted.

A spokesperson for the school said: "We have been having problems with both of our boilers, however, until today we have managed to get the second boiler to work to ensure we have some heating. The second boiler has now also stopped working which has left us with no heating.

"We do not want to close the school and are doing all we can to get the boiler fixed, however, due to Covid we are unable to get engineers out as quickly as we would like. With this in mind we are happy for students to wear coats in class if they are cold.

"Should the situation become untenable we may have to close the school on Friday."

The school plans to update parents and pupils tomorrow.
