Welcome to Minsthorpe Community College

Snow Forecast

Please keep an eye on the local weather forecasts this week. The college intends to remain open as normal but will close if we feel that the commute is dangerous for staff, students and parents or if we cannot make the site safe. We will post notices on the college website and social media accounts if we decide that we are unable to open. Parents will also receive a text via the School Gateway app. Information on the status of local schools can be found on the following websites:
