Cuckfield school closes due to ‘gas leak’

Warden Park Secondary Academy in Cuckfield has closed to all students today due to a ‘gas leak’.

On the school’s website, headteacher Mr Kenrick says: “We are closed today. On opening this morning we have a very strong smell of gas in a large area of the main building.

“We have shut down boilers and consequently, in addition to the gas smell, we have no hot water and no catering facilities. I am extremely sorry for the short notice.”

The school in Broad Street has since issued advice to students following the sudden closure. Read our story here: Cuckfield school closure: Advice for students
