Park Academy has taken delivery of its third Variety Club minibus. The bus was sponsored by The Friends of Park Community Academy who have spent the last three years tirelessly

fundraising towards it.

The school’s pupil numbers are set to rise to more than 250 from September putting pressure on the school’s existing transport. A school spokesman said: “A massive benefit to the school in gaining the new bus is that from September we can transport our Key Stage 2 pupils to the swimming pool each week for their swimming lessons, which will save us financially, enabling us to put that money back into our classrooms.”

The school runs regular residential visits to York, Edinburgh and Tower Wood.
