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
TEMPORARY CHANGES TO SERVICE 417
Please see below for a temporary timetable for the 417 bus which comes into effect from 16/01/18.
There are road works due to take place at the junction of Herbert Avenue and Arne Avenue to replace a gas main. This means that the bus company is starting the route 5 minutes earlier and this will affect those pupils boarding at stops before the road works.
The service will revert to its normal timetable on completion of the works which, subject to any unforeseen circumstances, are due to be finished by 18/02/2018.
POOLE BRIDGE CLOSURE
From Monday 12 September 2016, Poole Bridge will be closed for the replacement of the Approach Spans. This will affect the 448 service in Lower Hamworthy as it will have to operate via Twin Sails Bridge. During the period of the works the Potters Arms stop will not be served. The nearest stop is on Rigler Road. There are no changes to the timings of the service.
