No confirmed RAAC in our buildings. All areas are open.

You may have seen recent media coverage regarding Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) and its use in educational settings. RAAC is a lightweight form of concrete; because it is weaker than regular concrete, concerns have been raised about its long-term durability.

We do not have any confirmed RAAC in our buildings and have not been asked to close any areas.

We wanted to give you this reassurance as there has been much media coverage in recent days.

The Department for Education has been helping education settings and responsible bodies to identify and manage the potential risks of RAAC. You can find more in the Education Hub article published by the Department for Education: List of schools affected by RAAC and what you need to know about the new guidance – The Education Hub (

We appreciate the concern this may raise, and we will always prioritise the safety of our students and our staff.
