A Welwyn Garden City school has closed early following a small fire this morning.

A fire in the boiler room at Stanborough School caused an electrical fault, which resulted in a “complete power failure” at the Lemsford Lane school, according to its website.

The school subsequently closed at 1pm, and pupils who are unable to get home will be supervised until a parent is contacted to arrange collection.

The school should be open tomorrow, but parents are advised to check the website and Twitter for updates.

A planned school production of Oklahoma scheduled for tonight is set to go ahead, but that will be confirmed by 5.30pm via the school’s website and Twitter.

If cancelled, tickets from tonight will be valid for tomorrow.
