North Hykeham school closes due to heating failure

Sir Robert Pattinson Academy will be closed on Tuesday for Year 7, 8 and sixth form pupils due to a heating failure. A letter has been sent home to parents explaining that a faulty boiler has left part of the North Hykeham academy without any heat.

It is hoped to be open as normal on Wednesday December 5, and limited accommodation is available for those pupils who do not have anywhere else to go.
