Cancellation of Sweeper Bus

It is with much regret that the school is having to cancel the 4.00pm sweeper bus at the end of this term. Financial pressures on schools are constantly increasing and the cost to the school of the sweeper bus service can no longer be justified.  The number of students using the service, since September 2015, have steadily declined to such a level that the amount of subsidy paid by the school to keep the service running cannot be sustained in the present economic climate.

We still like to encourage as many students as possible to continue taking part in the varied extra-curricular activities the school offers, as taking part in these activities enriches the daily curriculum and provides the students with a well-rounded education.

Students will now obviously need to make alternative arrangements to get home after extra-curricular activities if they had previously used the sweeper bus service.
