The School operates a minibus service at 8.25am each morning from Wakefield Westgate Station to Silcoates for pupils who travel by train – usually from Doncaster and Leeds, but it can be used by those arriving from other destinations. The service operates in the mornings only, but a place on a coach can be booked for the afternoon return journey.
If you wish to reserve a seat on any of the School’s bus services, please contact Mrs Christine Wade, one of the School Secretaries, on 01924 885202. The appropriate form detailing pick-up and drop-off times will be forwarded to you to be completed and returned as soon as possible. Seats are reserved on a first come, first served basis and you are reminded that one full term’s notice in writing is required for the cancellation of a place.
All pupils travelling on the school buses must be aware of, and follow, the Code of Conduct which is provided at the time of confirmation of a place. This must be signed by both the parent and the child and returned to Mrs Wade before any journeys on the School’s buses can be undertaken.
