Canterbury pupils have remained at home today after the school's boiler room was flooded over the weekend.
The Simon Langton Boys school (below) in Nackington Road has closed to years 7, 8, 9 and 10 while repairs to the heating system are carried out.
But pupils in years 11 and sixth-form students are still expected to attend with classes taught in satellite buildings where heating and hot water are available.
Head of School Ken Moffat informed parents on Sunday flood damage had tripped the boiler room which services the main block of the school.
Despite attempts to contact engineers repair work could not be carried out until today.
Year 11 pupils have been told they can wear non uniform for the day and should wrap up warm.
The school's hockey matches for years 7 and 8 were also called off.
