Carew Academy will be closed to students on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th December, due to a gas leak on Church Road. This means we have no heating or hot water on site and we are unable to cook. We plan to reopen on Monday 9th December. Further details will be provided on the website, by e-mail and by text message.
