Coach delayed?

If a coach is delayed by more than ten minutes students should ring the College on 01373 465353. In the unlikely event that a coach has not arrived in another twenty minutes, students should telephone the College a second time.

Coach broken down?

If a coach breaks down either on the way to, or home from the College, students must remain with the coach until a relief vehicle arrives, or until instructed to do otherwise by a person in authority e.g. police. Somerset County Council cannot accept responsibility for the safety of students who disobey this instruction.

Secure storage space is available for students who wish to cycle to College.

Cycles may not be ridden on College premises.

Cycles must be kept in a roadworthy condition and only be used by the owner.

Students are strongly encouraged to wear a helmet.

Parents/carers can drop students off at the Leisure Centre car park. Both pedestrians and coaches have to use the access road by the Leisure Centre between 3 pm and 3.15 pm and private vehicles arriving unnecessarily during this time only increases the risk of accidents in this congested area - parking is particularly difficult at the end of the College day.
