Teachers' strike: Malmesbury School shut to pupils in years eight and nine

Malmesbury School will close to pupils in years eight and nine, but will remain open for years seven, 10, 11, 12 and 13.

Headmaster Tim Gilson said: “We will have a facility for year seven in the library that will be supervised.

“We will have our year 10 doing mock exams and year 12 are out on a trip so we have a couple of things going on which will make it easier for us to manage the situation.

“Strikes are always very difficult and disruptive; it’s hard for the parents too.

“Teachers that take part don’t do it lightly; they feel very strongly about it.

“We are all trying to do the best we can for the children and for the parents.”
