A small fire was detected in the toilets at 10:30am at Varndean School today. The fire service arrived shortly afterwards and contained the fire swiftly.
All students, staff and visitors had safely evacuated the building and the exams were largely unaffected, due to the timing of the alarm.
The fire service is now conducting an investigation into the cause of the fire. Students had resumed studies by 11:30 am.
Thank you to everyone for following our normal evacuation procedures calmly.
@CitizensBH Us too :)
