Thurston Community College will close today at 11am today and the closure will apply to both the main school campus and the Thurston Sixth campus at Beyton.

The school said the boiler failure is on the Thurston campus but it was necessary to close both sites due to transport organisation.

Helen Wilson, principal, said on the school’s website: “With regret we have made the decision to close the college at 11am today.

“This will apply to both the main school campus, Thurston, and Thurston Sixth: Beyton campus. This is due to a boiler failure on the Thurston campus. It is necessary to close both campuses due to transport organisation.
