These buses will be with us at 11.30 am:

- Heritage - Henfield

- Heritage - Hurstpierpoint

- The 89 bus (Horsham) will be with us at 12.30pm

Students will be allowed to use these buses as long as staff are satisfied that they have somewhere to go at the other end of the journey. Students will be collected from lesson 3 which will be operating normally.

Other buses will be operating a 3.15pm service as usual.

Parents with transport who are concerned about conditions may collect their children from reception. (We cannot allow students to simply walk home.)

We are happy for students to continue their learning until 3.15pm. Any students who have transport difficulties at 3.15pm can be accommodated until parents collect.”

If we have missed any let us know.
