Illegal encampment forces Ringwood School closure

Ringwood School is closed today, 29 June.

On Sunday, a large unauthorised encampment arrived at the Ringwood Health and Leisure Centre car park and the access road into Ringwood School. Members of the school staff met with Hampshire police and New Forest District Council, and the decision was made that access to the school was compromised. It is now possible to access the school, however, operational difficulties and the potential impact on students and staff accessing the school were considered and the school made the decision to close.

The school is working alongside the police and New Forest District Council to resolve this matter as promptly as possible to ensure students can return to the emergency school provision and planned Face to Face sessions for Year 10 and Year 12 on Tuesday 30 June.

A spokesperson from the school said, “We understand the impact this will have on our local community and appreciate your understanding.”
