Arrangements for the last day of term – Friday 20 July 2018

As in previous years, on the morning of the last day of term students will have a celebration assembly with their year group, and take part in activities arranged by their Head of Year.

The school day will finish at 1.10pm and students will be permitted to leave.  School buses will be operating to their normal timetable as follows …

1507 service 143 to Ambergate, Bull Bridge, Lower Hartsay and Ripley
1511 service 142 to Ambergate, Bull Bridge and Crich

1515 service 113 to Belper Triangle, Belper Lane End and Hazelwood Church

however, please note that THERE WILL BE NO SERVICE 360 (Harpur’s Coaches) to Openwoodgate, Bargate, Park’s Estate and Milford so students will need to make alternative arrangements to get home.

For those students unable to leave early, there will be supervised activities until the normal end of the school day at 3.00pm.  These students should report to A6 immediately following afternoon registration.

Arrangements for the students’ first day back in September (Wednesday 5 September) are being finalised and will be posted here when available.
