Mr Porter said: “We experienced quite severe flooding on the main school field.

“I’ve spoken to fellow colleagues and we don’t think it (flooding) has been this bad since 2007.

“The car park was also flooded yesterday.

“The water on the main school field has probably reduced by about 70%.

“I would like to thank site staff who were extremely helpful yesterday and helped us keep students off the field.

“It is very much business as usual now.”

A post on the De Aston School Facebook page said the build up of surface water resembled a swimming pool.

The post read: “We’re crossing our fingers that our newly developed swimming pool isn’t a permanent fixture!”
