In a post on Facebook a spokesman for the school said: "The Orwell Bridge will be closed from midnight for 24 hours which will cause traffic problems in and around Ipswich affecting staff and students arrival to the academy.

"Tomorrow only students are to arrive by 9:30 and registration will happen in period two."

Suffolk is braced for its second bout in quick succession, with Storm Ciarán to bring winds of 60mph in inland areas.

A yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office, and will be in place from midnight on Thursday.

A spokesman for National Highways said: "The decision to close the bridge at midnight has been taken to allow road users to plan alternative routes and for National Highways to safely install the closure and diversions ahead of the predicted high winds."

Diversion routes will be in place while the Orwell Bridge is closed.
