Delayed Return To School After Fire
9:35am 2nd January 2013
A Dorset School devastated by fire from a suspected lightning strike WILL be closed for the first 2 days of the new term.
It's the second time Lychett Minster Upper School - in-between Bere Regis and Poole - has been damaged by fire after the incident last Thursday (27th December).
Some student's exam coursework was destroyed and the new arts block completely destroyed in the blaze.
The School is expected to re-open in mid-January.
