All of Chippenham’s secondary schools will be affected by NUT strike action on Wednesday.

Abbeyfield, Hardenhuish and Sheldon schools will all be partially open for students in years 11, 12 and 13, but will be closed to students in other year groups.

At Sheldon, where just over one third of teaching staff - 43 teachers - are members of the NUT, the year 12 UCAS fair and psychology trip will go ahead as planned but the year 8 parents’ evening is postponed.

Space will be provided for year 7 pupils across Chippenham to work under supervision.

Parents wanting to take up this offer should email or or with their child’s name.

The Corsham School will be closed to pupils, although the sixth form will remain open.
