School Travel Plan
One of the aims of the school development plan is to further develop as a sustainable school by promoting greener ways of getting to school. As part of the Borough of Poole and national plan Poole Grammar School has devised a Travel Plan which targets reducing our Carbon footprint. On an annual basis data is collected to ascertain what effect school policies are having on travel patterns. This data is also used by the Borough to help it make decisions about increasing the number of cycles lanes, public service buses etc. As we are not a ‘neighbourhood’ school there will always be challenges but we do seek to encourage walking, cycling or using buses to get to school as it is a great way to keep fit. School buses provide a comprehensive service serving most areas and parents who do drive their sons to school are encouraged to car share and to drop their sons off and pick them up away from the school site for a short walk to promote fitness and wellbeing.
Linkrider Coaches have a private bus service from Swanage, Wareham, Lytchett Matravers, and one from Wool and Bovington. If you would like your son to use this service, please call Linkrider direct on 01929 477344 or e-mail email@example.com
Yellow Buses will be increasing their child fares with effect from 31st January 2016. This will affect all students who use a yellow bus service to get to school. CHILD FARES (A4) JAN 2016
