Yellow Bus Route

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have shared the concerns of many parents regarding the withdrawal of the U9 and U10 Yellow bus routes and have been working hard to try and find a solution to help our families at this worrying time. We have been in contact with Freedom Coaches who currently run the school bus that comes from Hamworthy. They have shown an interest in providing a school bus that could also include Parkstone and potentially other areas, subject to numbers of students travelling.

If you would be interested in using such a service, please would you advise the school of this by emailing enquiries@st-edwards.poole.sch.uk by 12 noon on Monday 26 March. If there is enough interest we will then be able to discuss further with Freedom coaches and come back to you with an update.
