Rye College suffered some minor damage when fire broke out in the Science Prep Room after school on Tuesday.

Prompt action by staff ensured that the building was quickly evacuated, although most of the students had left the site.

Thanks to the fire service’s swift response, the fire was both limited and contained.

The school was closed to students the next day as a precautionary measure and gas and electrical services switched off whilst the cause of the fire was ascertained.
