The site is a campus of 8 separate buildings, which students and staff move between throughout the day. For the safety of all, we do not allow vehicle movement.
Parents must not drive onto the school site between 8.10am and 3.50pm, except in emergencies (eg., if school contacts you to say that a pupil has been taken ill and needs to go home).
If you are attending for a meeting during the above times, or if you wish to visit school for other reasons, please use the public car park nearby on Rock Street. Please consider our neighbours and refrain from parking in residents only car parking areas or on double yellow lines.
Notice to Parents – Major Drainage Works, Monday 22nd April 2019
We have been advised by the contractors who are carrying out the drainage works at Mahdlo that, due to unforeseen complications, Horsedge Street will continue to be closed for a further six weeks. The road will be closed from the side of Mahdlo down towards Rock Street. The footpath, which is currently closed for building works on the Mahdlo side, will remain closed. However, the footpath on the opposite side of the road, outside the pharmacy, will remain open.
It is possible that further traffic management will be required on Egerton Street, with 3-way traffic lights operating on the mini roundabout outside school. This hasn’t been confirmed, but we will update you in due course with any further details.
We have received the attached Travel Information from ABTA in relation to Brexit which may affect pupils who are partaking in school trips abroad. This information is passed on in good faith and is subject to change. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for any incorrect guidance contained in this document.
Bus Services Information
The portal for yellow school bus applications will open on 1st June and will close on 30th June.
TFGM will then re-open the portal on 1stAugust for any services that have spare capacity following their initial allocation.
All students must apply for a pass each year as they are not automatically renewed. It is important that passes are applied for as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
If you have any queries regarding yellow school bus passes, please contact TFGM on 0161 244 1000. Please do not contact the school.
Please note that as from September 2019, the Y23 service is to be re-numbered 823, so pupils will no longer require a yellow school bus pass for this service. An IGO pass will still be required and these can be obtained by downloading an application from the TFGM website.
We have been notified by Transport for Greater Manchester that from 2nd January 2019, they will no longer be selling 7 day and 28 day anybus travelcards as a paper ticket. Pupils will need to ensure that they have an igo card which is smart enabled they will then use this card to load their travelcards directly.
Pupils who buy System One/Get Me There Travelcards currently use their igo pass solely for ID, but from January they will need this card each time they purchase a ticket.
