24th February 2019
I am writing to you to confirm the new bus timetables in advance of the changes to the school day that will start after the February half term on Monday 25th February 2019.
Globe will be the main bus provider but I have also attached the timetable from Stagecoach as students will be able to use Stagecoach services and board the bus in Oakwood Square, Kexborough, just outside school. Please be aware that Stagecoach passes cannot be used on Globe transport at the moment as they only accept cash. However, we are looking to introduce a prepaid bus pass and guaranteed seats from school once the services are up and running.
On the timetable, the main stops are listed but the bus will actually stop at any bus stop if the student signals that they would like the bus to stop.
It is our intention to monitor this closely during the first two weeks of operation and Globe will also be sending out staff to monitor the numbers, capacities and stops to make sure we are covering everything needed. The timetable will also be published on the Globe website once SYTA have approved it.
Just a reminder that the new school day will start at 8.25 am and finish at 2.30 pm. Enrichment will run from 2.30 pm to 3.30 pm.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.
