The school in Kensington that was damaged by fire has reopened to pupils.
The Spanish Institute was closed on Tuesday (December 5) after a fire broke out in the Portobello Road building the previous evening.
A staff member at the school told getwestlondon on Wednesday (December 6) morning that the school had reopened as normal, with the exception of the computer room which was damaged by the flames.
The London Fire Brigade (LFB) was called to the three-storey building on Monday (December 4) at 8.23pm, with four engines and 21 firefighters from Kensington, North Kensington and Paddington attending.
Watch manager Thomas Wolfe, who was at the scene, said: “When we arrived the smoke that was coming out was very black and thick so we were quite worried about back draught conditions.
“The fire had caught the wall and some of the computers alight but crews worked quickly to bring the fire under control and stop it spreading to other parts of the building.”
The fire was under control by 9.53pm.
The Spanish Institute teaches more than 500 pupils, including the children of Spanish Embassy staff, aged between four and 18.
LFB believe the fire was caused by a fault within a chilling unit.
