RECORD numbers of schools are set to close or face major disruption as heads and teachers go on strike on Wednesday in protest to changes to their pensions.

Portsmouth City and Hampshire County councils have published lists of schools in their areas that have made contingency plans to either close, partially close or remain open if the industrial action goes ahead.

The industrial action is set to be the biggest in decades as 26 unions including the four major classroom unions - the NUT, NASUWT, NAHT and ATL walk out in protest.

They are angry at government proposals to make them pay more into their pensions, receive less when they retire and work until they are 68.

In Portsmouth, the city council says at least 46 schools - arouind 80 per cent of the total - will either close or be open to specific year groups.

Here are the lists of school closures released by the city council and by Hampshire County Council.
