We have been made aware that the Renown Bus Service that comes into school at the end of the school day, transporting Bexhill Academy students as part of a bus route, is no longer running. We understand that the Local Authority has a new contract with Stagecoach. We have also been made aware that no alternative service has been provided by the replacement company, for the end of the school day, to take students to the Little Common district.
We have been in contact with Stagecoach, who has taken over the service, and currently have been advised that students can catch a bus from Turkey Road at 3.45pm.
We appreciate that this is not ideal for our students as our school day ends at 2.50pm and especially with the winter months drawing in. If you are unable to secure alternative transport arrangements for your child at the end of the school day, students are welcome to attend Independent Study in our library from 2.50pm, Monday – Thursday, or one of the other clubs that are available after school. The clubs and activities are currently being updated on our website; Students > After School Clubs and Activities.
Additionally, food and drink is available in the Heart Space until 3.30pm. Students are welcome to use this space during this time.
Please be assured that we are in contact with Stagecoach in order to try to identify a solution. However, this is not a service provided by the school, so any outcome will be decided by the bus company.
