A school has delayed its reopening by more than a week following a flurry of coronavirus cases linked to holidays abroad.

Sir William Borlase's Grammar School in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, was set to welcome back pupils today but will now return on September 10.

Following talks with health officials, headteacher Kay Mountfield decided to squeeze the brakes and broke the news to parents last Friday.

She cited Covid-19 infections 'in the school community' and insisted she was 'prioritising safety'.

It is a further blow to the school which was left bruised by the A-Level exams fiasco when 85 per cent of its pupils had marks downgraded.
