13th August 2020 – Update
The School is working with a Preston-based bus company, Andrew Wright Group, to try and provide an alternative home-to-school bus service. Please email Andrew Wright on AndrewWrightGroup@hotmail.com with the subject “QEGS Service”, advising where you wish your child to be picked up from. Andrew Wright will then contact you directly.
1st July 2020 – Update
It is with regret that we have made the decision that the QEGS Bus Service will not operate from September 2020.
Following a consultation with all parents and carers, and a subsequent unsuccessful proposal of a restructured service, the School is no longer in a position to substantially subsidise the bus service.
Each parent and carer has been contacted individually to inform them of this decision, which has been made following discussions with the School’s governors and a questionnaire that was circulated to all parents and carers in Lent term. Each affected family has also been offered the opportunity to make individual arrangements with the School and we are happy to be moving forwards with these arrangements.
If you have further questions relating to this issue or would like to ask any questions regarding school transport and travel arrangements, please contact PAtkinson@QegsBlackburn.com
