Early Finish Monday 14th September 2015 at 2 pm
There will be an early finish to the school day on Monday 14th September for Open Evening, with lunch at 12.15, Period 4 at 1.05 pm and the day ending at 2.00 pm. Those students that normally catch the Grosvenor Buses (822 and 894) will still be able to catch a bus home off site (Blossomfield Road), at the early time of 2.00 pm. For students who get the West Midlands Buses we cannot guarantee that they can arrive earlier at 2.00 pm. If you are unable to make alternative arrangements for your child to get home at this earlier time, please contact the pupil reception office on the usual school number and we will provide facilities until the usual time of 3 pm.
FOR STUDENTS GETTING THE GROSVENOR BUSES 822 AND 894
For clarification The 894 Bus is for ALL Cheswick Green Pupils. Note the different routes below for the 822: The 822 DOUBLE DECKER Bus travels Fulford Hall Road turning left on Norton Lane route. The 822 SINGLE Bus travels Low Brook Lane route. The first bus that arrives here at ABK is the 822 (double decker). There is no need for this to be over-crowded as the 822 (single) will follow. Please bear this in mind. The Buses will now have appropriate signs on them indicating what route they are travelling.
Students that normally catch the 894A Bus to and from Alderbrook
Undoubtedly you are aware that there have been some teething problems with the 894A route, coming to and going from Alderbrook. This has affected those students that reside in the Monkspath Area – particularly the Frank Holmes Drive/Thornton Road neighbourhoods. National Express/WM Travel have assured us that they are working on this issue and will be in communication with us as soon as it is resolved. Meanwhile, the 894A still has the route on Monkspath Hall Road, where students can catch the bus at any bus stop. We are keeping a close monitor on this situation and will report back once this problem has been resolved.
