A SOUTHAMPTON school has confirmed another student has tested positive for coronavirus.

In an email to parents, staff at Upper Shirley High School said they were notified overnight that a year 11 student had tested positive.

They said that year 11's started from period 2 this morning to give staff time to establish who needs to isolate.

This is the second confirmed test at the school in as many days as another letter was sent out to parents yesterday in relation to another case.

Over 850 students attend the secondary school and staff said in the letter that they would be in touch today to advise who is able to come to school.
