Woodstock pupils move schools during roof repairs

Pupils from a school which closed because the building was deemed unsafe will move to a neighbouring school while repair work is carried out.

Wootton-by-Woodstock C of E Primary School closed on Monday after a crack was discovered in a main roof beam of the 18th Century listed building.

The school's 64 pupils will begin lessons at Marlborough C of E School in Woodstock from 11 March.

The repair work is expected to take up to 10 weeks.
