A BRADFORD district school has had to partially close this morning.

A fault in the fire alarm system at Beckfoot Oakbank in Oakworth has forced the school to close for Years 7 to 10 and 12.

Years 11 and 13 will be taught in special areas of the school.

A spokesperson for Beckfoot Oakbank said: "Due to an intermittent fault with our fire alarm system we are only able to use parts of the school and open partially today.

"Due to the forthcoming external exams we have prioritised Year 11 and Year 13.

"Year 11 will be taught in the sports centre and Year 13 will have their programme in the Post 16 area.

"Resources will be placed on Teams for Years 7 to 10 and Year 12."
