Kent Fire and Rescue Service was alerted to this, and students and staff were all safely evacuated from the site. The fumes and smoke have now been cleared from the building. I’d like to pay tribute to the fire service for their quick actions, and also to our students and staff who remained calm and swiftly exited the building in an orderly fashion.”
