The Royal School will be closed to ‘Day Pupils’ on Monday 11 December due to the heavy snow that has fallen on Sunday, 10 December, and the Met Office forecasting very low temperatures overnight and into Monday. Many pupils come from a great distance and roads are treacherous in remote areas and also closer to the city transport is likely to be difficult. This is not a step the School takes lightly, but safety of pupils, parents, carers and staff is paramount. Boarding pupils remain in school and will be ably looked after by staff and can perhaps further improve their snow structures built today!
With improving weather and clearance of roads being likely during Monday we hope to open on Tuesday, 12 December and be able to enjoy the performance of Macbeth in the Theatre in the evening.
We will of course update parents and carers during Monday regarding arrangements for Tuesday through Schoolcomms, the School website and social media channels.
