A spokesperson for Meadow Park School said: “Following a threat received before the start of the school day, we informed (the) police and contacted parents to say we needed to close the school.

“The safety of our students is our number one priority and our established contingency plan was activated to minimise disruption to pupils and the wider school community. We expect the school to reopen as normal tomorrow (June 11).”

Year 11 students, who have GCSE exams today, have been relocated to Finham Park School for their exams.
