School Closure Tomorrow due to Severe Weather Warning – Storm Ciaran

Dear Parents and Carers,


RE: School Closure Tomorrow due to Severe Weather Warning – Storm Ciaran


I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to inform you this evening, in the hope that it gives you as much time as possible to make necessary arrangements, of my decision to close Bay House School and Sixth Form tomorrow. This decision has been made in the best interest of the health and safety of our staff, pupils, and students and in light of the severe weather warning in place for Storm Ciaran.


We have been closely monitoring the weather forecasts for the impending storm, particularly due to our coastal positioning as a site. The severe weather presents a risk to staff and pupils travelling to school, combined with the potential for dangerous conditions inflicted by the storm around our school site throughout the day tomorrow and has led me to make the difficult decision to close the school for the day.


I understand that this may cause some inconvenience for parents and carers who will need to make alternative arrangements for their children. However, our primary concern is to ensure that everyone remains safe during the adverse weather conditions expected during the storm.


Please note the following details regarding the closure;

  • School Closure Date: Thursday 2nd November 2023
  • All on site classes, events, and activities scheduled for this date will be cancelled


I will continue to monitor the weather conditions and updates will be provided as necessary regarding the school’s reopening on Friday 3rd November.


Work will be available for pupils tomorrow via Google Classrooms, Oak National Academy and revision materials outlined below.
