Holyhead High school closes early after storm damage

Pupils at an Anglesey school are getting an extended Christmas break after their school's science block was damaged by high winds.

Anglesey council said the school was closed on Thursday to make the building safe, and it remained closed on Friday.

Work has been scheduled over the Christmas period and will be carried out subject to weather conditions.

The head teacher said he fully expected the school to be open as usual for the start on the new term on 6 January.

"The roof of Holyhead High School's science block was damaged by strong winds on Wednesday night," said a council spokesperson.

"Following an assessment by our property service, it was decided to close the school early on Thursday. The school was also closed to pupils on Friday in order to make the building safe."
