A school in Didcot has announced an emergency closure due to a lack of running water.

The Aureus School in Didcot, Oxfordshire closed today because of "problems with the water pipes".

On its website, the school says a letter will be sent out to parents with full details of the closure.

In a public social media post, the school also said: "Thank you for your understanding."

There are currently no other reported school closures in Oxford.

The Aureus School is a co-educational, non-selective educational establishment for 11-16 year-olds.

Aureus School opened in Harwell at a cost of £19 million in September 2017, at the Great Western Park estate.

It is one of 14 schools in Didcot (excluding Independent Schools).

We have contacted the Aureus School for more information on today's closure.
