We apologise for the great inconvenience caused to you at our Parent Consultation Evening on 28th November 2019. All electrical power was lost at the Academy and across 1346 other properties in Desford from just before 5 pm for an hour. The electricity supply was finally restored at 5.53pm.
I have been informed by Western Power Distribution that it was caused by a fault on an 11KV underground cable which blew just outside Hillrise sub-station nearby. Re-routing of cables has now taken place and I have been assured that there will be no further power loss.
We will explain how parents who missed some or all appointments can get an update on their child’s progress very soon when we contact you via email and text.
