St. Mary’s Visit to South Africa Exceeds Expectations
We have been informed of changes to the bus service for St Mary's Students. Please see the information below, along with the weblink for full details of bus services. We apologise for the late notice of these changes, but the information has only just come into school. Please note that on the weblink, we are referred to as Menston St Mary's School.
In relation to Menston St Mary’s School, this means that a revised network of services will be introduced reducing the number services from 9 to 7 plus one PM only service.
To achieve this, limited stop arrangements will apply on these services as shown below:
SM21 will not pick up/set down between Calverley (Carr Road/Fraser Road) and school;
SM22 will not pick up/set down between Rawdon (Canada Road/Harrogate Road) and school;
SM23 will not pick up/set down between Rawdon Road/Hall Lane and school;
SM24 will not pick/Up set down between Horsforth (Brownberrie Lane/West End Lane) and school.
I should add that all four buses will be full so could not, in any case, accommodate additional passengers.
Children living in Guiseley and Yeadon will be required to travel to school on Services 33 and 33A (see journeys below), and from school on new service S58. A school special service is required on an afternoon because Service 33A passes the school at 1507 and could easily be missed by pupils.
33 0741 Rawdon Cross Roads to Guiseley White Cross (arrive 0755). From there, children have an 800m walk (10 mins).
33A 0757 Rawdon Cross Roads to school (arrive 0815).
The service from Otley has not changed but has been renumbered from SM8 to SM26. This has changed to from double deck to Mybus operation (57 seater) based on usage in 2016/17.
The service from Ilkley has also not changed but has been renumbered from 876 to SM25.
The Mybus service from Burley (S38) has been withdrawn as children can be accommodated on Service SM25, which passes through Burley on route from Ilkley.
The service from Shipley (L21) has not changed.
The CA has written to those parents who have applied for a place on the school bus services to inform them of the change to the arrangements.
Full details of the school special services operating in 2017/18 can be found at http://www.generationm.co.uk/your-school/schoolfinder/ .
