Due to the forecast for heavy snow falls and freezing temperatures tomorrow and the extensive snow falls experienced today in areas where many staff live in Thanet and along the north coast, all four Sandwich schools - Infants, Juniors, Technology School and Manwood’s - have decided to be closed on Friday 2 March.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but are sure you will understand that the health and safety of both students and staff have been our prime consideration when coming to this decision.

It is anticipated that the weather will improve over the weekend and that we shall be open and keen to put this disruptive week behind us on Monday.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this very difficult week.
