Mayfield Preparatory School is closed to pupils and staff on Friday 2nd March due to adverse weather conditions and health and safety concerns on the roads around Walsall. Both Queen Mary’s Grammar and High Schools are also closed, as well as most, if not all, of the local authority schools in the area. World Book Day and all the planned activities, including dressing up as your favourite book character, will take place on another date to be announced soon. The Hallfield Cross Country meet on Saturday has also been cancelled. We will keep you updated on whether the Dudley Music Festival will go ahead.
