Thankfully we seem to have seen the worst of the snow. Staff, parents and students were extremely supportive of the actions we took during the snow. However, you soon realise that you cannot please all of the people all of the time.
We have some unique situations at the Forge that make snow really difficult to deal with:

  • We are at the bottom of a hill, whichever way you come into the Forge you need to cope with hills.
  • We have 5 blocks, so students and staff have to go outside during the day. Also cleaning the site is a massive job.
  • Our car park is at the rear of the building, this meant hiring a snow plough to clear the drive and the car park

Many thanks to all the staff, who braved the weather to dig us out.
I can guess you can say it was ‘snow’ joke
