The two secondary schools in Nantwich have been closed because of the weather today (March 22).

Headteachers at Brine Leas High School and Malbank School and Sixth Form College both decided to close for the day.

Heavy snow and blizzard like weather are causing treacherous conditions on roads and safety issues on school premises.

Many staff are also struggling to get in to school.

Shavington High School is also shut, as is Sound Primary School on the outskirts of Nantwich.

South Cheshire College in Crewe has remained open.

Warnings remain in place for worse to come later tonight and tomorrow.

Cheshire Police and Cheshire East Council officials are warning residents not to travel.

  1. South Cheshire College remained open all day.

  2. Blizzard conditions!?!?….do I live in the same Nantwich!…
    Schools closed ….. what a joke … 3 flakes of snow and panic!
    My parents are in Wales with 6ft drifts & no power but I forgive their local schools being shut!

  3. Well, if that is what the schools call “blizzard conditions” I don’t know what they would do if it really snowed. I’ve been out today and all the roads are clear and there is barely 2 inches of snow which is melting rapidly.
    This fear of a few snowflakes is getting beyond a joke.

  4. What blizzard? Could hardly believe this story. My five year old grandson is in school!
