Arreton Street 12 Week Closure - Diversions to bus service
Due to the closure of Arreton Street for 12 weeks of resurfacing works, the contracted bus service 332 will need to operate the following diversionary route.
Diversionary Route AM At Forest Road Winford the service 332 will divert via Winford Road, Newchurch High Street, Newchurch Shute, Knighton Lane, Knighton Shute, Downs Road, and Downend Road and re-join the normal route at Arreton Cross. PM As per morning reversed.
Please be aware this will greatly affect the students from Arreton Village, who will not be served. For this period their nearest pick up points will be either the bus stop at Forest Road, Winford (08:20) or the temporary stop at Arreton Cross (08:33). Additionally it is also worth noting that as a result of the diversionary route, the service will be later than usual arriving at other bus stops either side of the closure and may arrive later than normal at school.
On behalf of the Governing Body, and in accordance with Paragraph 1.4 of the Schools Admission Code 2014, the Governing Body of Christ the King College will admit 270 students to Year 7 in September 2015. The Governing Body agreed this increase for 2015 only, at a meeting of the full Governing Body Committee, held on Thursday 22nd January 2015.
I am sure parents will forgive me if, today of all days, I focus to a large extent on year 11 and their final day of compulsory schooling. Today, in the Sixth Form Hall, it was a time of mixed emotions as I am sure you will understand. The current Year 11 were the first set of students who joined Christ the King College as one amalgamated and unified body. They have truly been worthy and wonderful ambassadors of our College and I am sure, with me, you will want to wish them all the very best for their futures. The photographs at the end of the newsletter probably say it all. Please enjoy them and keep this special year group in your prayers. Parents of Year 11 should also have received a separate mailing with important information about the arrangements after half term. The students themselves have also had the information explained to them but, as always, do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. It remains only for me to wish everyone a good half-term. I very much look forward to the final seven weeks of this academic year and all that it will bring.
