Stoke High School – Ormiston Academy to reopen tomorrow after burst water valve
Stoke High School – Ormiston Academy in Ipswich will reopen tomorrow (Thursday) after being forced to close today due to a burst water valve, it has announced.

Repair work was carried out during the day while staff assessed whether the academy could reopen on Thursday.
