I am sorry that the College will be closed on Monday 19 March.
I have been monitoring the weather all day and hoped that we would be in a position to open tomorrow. However at the moment the snow in Okehampton is getting worse and is due to continue much later into the morning than was forecast earlier today and the weather warning for ice is not lifted until later in the day.
Advice from the police is not to travel and buses will struggle to operate. Having consulted widely this evening I have reluctantly taken the decision to close the College in the interests of the safety of students, parents and staff.
We will be open at the usual time on Tuesday 20 March.
Incidents on the roads around Okehampton have resulted in the College being used over night tonight as an emergency rescue centre. If anyone would like to volunteer and can safely get to the College, I am sure they would be grateful for any help.
