A school in east Cambridgeshire which has had no running water for the last three days will reopen its doors to students tomorrow.  

Littleport and East Cambs Academy is set to reopen on Thursday (February 24) after informing parents that a faulty water system had been repaired.  

An engineer had been at the school, off Wisbech Road in Littleport, on Monday (February 21) but couldn’t fix the issue, leaving the academy without running water.  

A letter sent to parents read: “Due to the fact that the engineer has been unable to repair the fault to the water pumping system and a part needs to be ordered, we will again have no running water on site tomorrow.  

“Unfortunately due to this the academy will remain closed tomorrow Tuesday February 22 2022.   

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you, but we have no choice in our decision.   

“Remote learning with take place and work will be set by teachers and sent via Team of Go 4 Schools.
