A spokeswoman said the school is grateful nobody was hurt in the storm.

"A really large tree behind one of the buildings fell, and took the gutter off the building,” she said.

"It was so lucky that it missed everything around it.

"It did some damage, but it was a lucky angle at which it fell.

"New brick work was just laid, and it missed all of that.”
