The Marvell College was evacuated during the morning session on the direction of Robertsons Facilities Management following a report of a gas smell on the second floor.
The school followed its emergency evacuation procedure and all pupils, staff and visitors were accounted for. During the period of evacuation, basic provisions such as water and toilets facilities were available.
The building was declared safe by the relevant gas authority at 15:10 and will be open as normal tomorrow.
We would like to thank pupils, staff and parents for their support and patience, which ensured the safe departure of children from the site.
