Another school in Northampton has closed as a result of the second False Widow outbreak in a week.


After a suspected false widow spider outbreak, a second school has been forced to evacuate in less than a week. After the creepy crawly was discovered at the Dunston School in Northampton, more than 1,500 students were sent home.

If confirmed, the infestation would be the second to close a school, following Malcolm Arnold Academy’s temporary closure last week on September 17.

Duston principal Sam Strickland confirmed in a letter to all parents that the school’s primary and secondary phases would be forced to close.

He stated that while the arachnids are being removed, all staff and students will be unable to attend school.

However, students will not be given a day off because teachers have assigned online work to be completed.
