Privilege Seats - Academic Year 2017-2018 Update December 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have been advised by the Isle of Wight Council Transport team that no new Privilege Seat Bus Passes will be issued for the Spring Term until at least Mid-January 2018. 
It has been agreed with Southern Vectis that students who currently hold a Privilege Seat Pass will still have their current passes accepted even though the expiry date printed on them is December, 2017.  Students should therefore not dispose of these passes at the end of term only when they are in receipt of a new term pass.

 Regards

Christ the King College
