The statement said that the closure had been forced, on what should have been the first day back after half-term, because of storm damage but it will be holding lessons online and reopening on Tuesday March 1.

Headteacher Andrew Parkinson told the Wetherby News: “Over the half-term break, stormy weather and associated high levels of rainfall caused significant damage to a number of teaching spaces at Tadcaster Grammar School.

“Remedial works are continuing to ensure the school is safe for all students and staff.
