A SCHOOL in Swanmore is set to re-open tomorrow (July 20) after sewage problems forced it to close.

Swanmore College was closed for two days after it was left without toilets.

Staff said they were aware of a 'bad odour' at approximately 5.30pm on July 14, before calling a drains company, which responded immediately.

On Facebook, Swanmore College headteacher Kyle Jonathan said: “The main blockage has been cleared, however, the cause of the blockage is still under investigation to ensure no further remedial work is needed, owing to the age of the sewer.

“There will be a large scale clean-up operation taking place around the site today to ensure that the entire area is safe for pupils to return tomorrow (July 20).

“Once again, we will put work on Google Classroom and update you as soon as we are able to do so.”
