STAFF at Stoke High which was yesterday hit by a devastating arson attack said today that it was business as usual at the school.

And a planned open day later this month will also go ahead, giving prospective parents and students the opportunity to find out more about the school.

The school was closed yesterday while a clean up operation was carried out after the fire in the science lab.

Headteacher Martin Liddle said the school was back up and running today. He added: "Our open days are usually very well attended, and I hope this one will be too, despite the news this week.

"The open day is an excellent opportunity for parents and young people to see the school in action, and we are looking forward to showing people what we have to offer them."

Young people and their parents will be able to take a tour of the school, see lessons in progress during the afternoon, talk to present students about studying at Stoke High and view exhibitions of student work.

There are two sessions at the open day on October 31, 2 – 4pm and 7 – 9pm. For more information call Susanne Bache on 01473 601252.

The Evening Star has offered a £500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people involved in yesterday's arson attack.

If you saw anything suspicious call the police now on 01473 613500.
