We have been informed by the Transport Department at the Local Authority that the bridge between New Brancepeth and Ushaw Moor will be closed from today until further notice. To enable students to get to and from school safely free transport has been organised by the Local Authority from today onwards until the bridge re-opens.
A bus will leave from outside new Brancepth Working Mens Club at 8.30am each morning and then turn left and travel through the housing estate stopping to pick up at bus stops (same route as the No 48 bus), on leaving the estate the bus will then travel through Allenwaters to school.
Students will be issued with a bus pass within the next couple of weeks by the Local Authority, however any students travelling from New Brancepth will be entitled to use the bus.Don't forget College will be closed this Friday 29th and Monday 2nd for the Bank Holiday

We empower them to be honest, respectful, thoughtful and positive role models.

We foster individual interests and passions and believe everyone has something they are good at and can excel in.
