The Head of Thornhill Primary School in Southampton has written to parents to inform them that the school will remain closed on Monday 27th June because of flooding.

The school has been closed since Thursday. Headteacher Kerry Stamp said:

"Dear Parent and Carers, Re: School closures As you will be aware the school closed Thursday 23rd, Friday 24th and I am afraid to say will remain closed on Monday 27th June 2016. Extremely heavy rain fall on Wednesday evening meant that water poured through into the school flooding the whole of the main corridor, library and into the majority of all lower ground classrooms."
