Barton Peveril closed tomorrow due to snow

Barton Peveril College have emailed students and parents to say they will be closed tomorrow, Thursday 1 March.

The college says this due to a Met Office  amber weather warning for the region predicting snow and ice which they rate  as ‘likely’ and as ‘high impact’.

The Eastleigh college says the majority of students get to college by bus and while operators  can guarantee a journey into college tomorrow they cannot not guarantee one back from it and there is a risk of students being stranded.

Staff have been asked to give students clear instructions on work which they should do on Thursday.

A decision about Friday will be taken on Thursday following consultation with bus companies and in the light of weather forecasts and conditions on the college site.
