    Would you say anything?

    Across the road from here is an infant/junior school.

    Regularly, around midnight there appears to be a light comes on in a top floor corridor and the adjacent classroom and there appears to be a figure walking the length of the classroom.
    There is only one door out, the same as the one in but it never leaves.
    This has been going on for quite a long time.

    \What do you think?

    Could it be a caretaker/security guard?

    Maybe ring the school office and mention it?

    No security guards and the classroom is on the top floor, no other lights are on.

    Are you sure it's not the staffroom area? Most staffrooms where I am or on the second floor.

    Do think lockdown got to someone and they are sleeping at the school?

    I don't know a teacher getting resources, I know it's late but seems odd. Any cars in the car park?

    I used to work with a headteacher who would sometimes sleep at school because she worked so much. We used to joke about finding her under her desk in the morning.

    However it does sound like you have yourself a school ghost. There is one in every school. I never used to want to be in the school last spooky places !

    Its not the staff room and the only lights on are the top corridor and classroom not the stairs etc.
    May be haunted as it has been going on for a long time.

    It’s worth phoning the school and mentioning it they might be able to give you an explanation.

    I think we should try and predict the outcome :)

    I’m saying it’s one of the teachers bunking down in the building.

    OK will have a think and try to remember when they go back to school.

    Thinking about ghosts, we had not had many instances in this house lately with our two resident spirits, one a male and a dog.

    The dog appears as a shadow in the dining room/kitchen and lobby area. The only dogs we have had are Border Collies so presume it is one of the earlier ones. It likes to appear mainly when I am in lobby preparing the current dogs dinners - we have 3 collies at present.

    The male is upstairs and goes around the landing and what was the two bedrooms that my sons and their partners used. He has been there for nearly 30 years and we think it is my father looking after the boys. Soon after my father died my youngest son (about 3 at the time) would often be found to be having a conversation with him, in his bedroom and his older brother (about 5 at the time) also "saw" him before he melted through the wall onto the landing (It is a chimney wall).

    The landing at the top of the stairs is quite wide and soon narrows down towards the bathroom and toilet and our bedroom.

    When eldest son's partner got up in the night once she went to the loo, just as she opened the door something caught her eye standing beside her and it went "Sshhh".
    Frightened the life out of her.

    There have been very many incidents upstairs including things disappearing and reappearing but we are cool about it after all it's a good selling point as well.
    Thanks Dad.

    Someone would still be monitoring emails you could email the office even if the school is closed.

    I know I’m so nosey. I’ve worked in schools for years and there have been many strange comings and goings.

    I wonder why schools would be haunted though. Unhappy pupils, frustrated teachers?
