New Minibus for John Colet School – THANK YOU

We would like to thank our past and current parents for their monthly donations to the school as their generosity has enabled us to purchase a new minibus. Our current minibuses can only be driven by members of staff who either passed their driving test before 1st January 1997 or have subsequently taken the ‘D1’ DVLA test as current legislation states that the minibuses are too heavy to be driven without a ‘D1’ category being on a driving licence. This had meant that only a very small number of staff were able to transport students or we had to hire a minibus and driver. The new minibus is lighter in weight and will enable our younger members of staff who do not have the ‘D1’ category on their driving licence to take students to various out of school activities and events.
