Paris Trip Updates

17th June 2020

The finance department has begun to refund payments made for the Paris trip. Each individual payment has to be refunded separately, so refunds will arrive in a few installments. Please don't be concerned if you have only received a partial refund so far, we estimate that these will take around a week to complete.

Thank you for your patience.

5th June 2020 

As you know we have been waiting for our trip to be cancelled by PGL in order to try and acquire refunds for the deposits we've paid. On Monday we received confirmation from PGL that as government advice on travel has not been lifted, our trip has been officially cancelled from their end. We are incredibly disappointed to say that despite this, they are refusing to refund deposits.  We realise that many families may have financial concerns at this time and therefore the school is going to provide refunds to our parents/carers and claim the money back from the school's insurance. We are confident that we can reclaim all the money paid so far.

We are currently working with ParentPay in order to make this happen as soon as possible. We will be in touch again when we have details of the date on which you should expect a full refund of all payments made towards the trip.

Thank you so much for your patience whilst we have been sorting this.

Public Transport Information for 11-16

The Local Authority has sent schools a reminder about students being able to use public transport at a concessionary rate.

All pupils age 11-16 must have an IGO card (from Transport for Greater Manchester) in order to travel on public transport at the concessionary rate, this also includes school services.  Pupils will need an IGO card to travel on school buses at a concessionary fare.

Pupils will also need to apply separately for the Yellow Bus scheme but will have to possess an IGO card as well.  Pupils will also need to apply for free school travel if they are eligible.

Applications can be made at the websites listed:

IGO passes - available now

Yellow Bus Scheme - available 1st June 30th June

Failure to apply for places on the Yellow Bus Scheme may result in the buses not being allocated this year.

Free school travel for eligible pupils - available week of the 6th May

Those pupils who are already in receipt of free school travel will receive a renewal letter over the next few days and do not need to reapply.

Dear Kingsway Year 11 students,

The time has come to bid farewell to your school which has supported you in your journey so far. Whatever you have learned from this institution,

it will enable you to stand in good stead in future situations. It will guide and make your life successful through the tools of  academic, moral and spiritual development for the challenges that you may face in the future.

Go forth and embrace your upcoming journey, either at college or an apprenticeship with open arms, and enthusiastically pursue your own life journey of skills discovery, service to others and live a happy and successful life.

I look forward to welcoming some of you at Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form College in September and until then wish you all the very best.

Mohammed Ramzan
Transition Principal and Accounting Officer
