Guilsborough Academy is closed today Friday 15th December. 

The Academy is closed to staff and students due to Health and Safety concerns related to the weather. 

We cannot believe after everything we have all done this week we are having to close.  However, we will always put staff and student health and safety first.

The the bus company have cancelled the buses.  On top of this the site has masses of sheet ice, which is not physically possible to move for the start of school to make the site safe..  

We are sorry that this will cause inconvenience and have tried to let everyone know as soon as possible.

We plan to be open on Monday the 18th December 2017.
