School Closed 1 March 2018

28th February 2018
We can confirm that Stickland's will be shut on Thursday 1 March 2018 due to a severe weather warning.
We received an email earlier from Dorset County Council advising us that all school transport had been cancelled for tomorrow and Friday due to Storm Emma. The most severe weather is forecast to hit at around 2pm Thursday so homeward journeys for students, parents and staff would be very difficult, especially considering our rural location, which is not always gritted.
We are aware of the disruption that this will cause and this decision has not been made lightly.  The safety of our pupils, their families and staff is paramount and based on information from multiple sources we feel that this is the right choice.
I hope you understand and please check the following website for updates about Friday.
Kind Regards
