Snow Forecast Monday 11th December

* Update – Monday 11th January – 0830 *

No snow has settled here at St Mary’s and it looks unlikely that it will. However, freezing temperatures may mean icy roads so please travel safely. 

Although Dorset is as yet untouched by the snowfall experienced by other parts of the country today, snow and ice are forecast for Shaftesbury in the early hours of Monday 11th December.

As a boarding school St Mary’s is always open, but we would urge you to avoid travelling to school unless it is absolutely safe for you and your family to do so.  If you prefer to delay your journey until later in the morning when conditions are clearer, please do so.

If you make the decision not to travel, please contact the school to report your daughter’s absence in the usual way.

Further information will follow early tomorrow morning.
