A Suffolk school will be closed to most pupils on Friday following water damage from the recent weather.
SET Saxmundham School will be closed to pupils in year's 7,8,9 and 10 because of water damage caused by high winds, rain and leaking pipes.
However, students in year 11 will still be expected to attend.
The school had encountered problems on Thursday but was able to relocated classes following a school trip which reduced the number of students on site.
In a statement on their Facebook page, the school said: "A combination of high winds, rain and leaking pipes in parts of the school means we have succumbed to some water damage.
"We have taken the difficult decision to close part of the school tomorrow to enable remedial work to take place before further work is completed over the holidays.
"The school will therefore be closed to Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 on Friday 14 February 2020.
