Wingfield Academy Bus Service

A copy of the letter sent home to parents can be found here

I am writing to you regarding a new service we would like to offer all students. We have had a school bus for the past year; this bus transports students from out of area to and from the Academy daily. In September we had the opportunity to hire a larger bus from Marsland Travel.

Therefore I would like to offer your child the opportunity to use the school bus, however there will be a charge for this. The cost per journey will be 80p this can be paid directly to the bus driver or alternatively you can pay for the full week/month via ParentPay (a pass will be issued at break time on a Monday if you pay via ParentPay).

The bus route and approximate timings for you to review can be found here. Afternoon drop of times will commence from approx. 2.55pm, and drop students off in reverse order.

Marsland Travel is a well-known reputable company with a vast amount of transportation knowledge. All the drivers have had the relevant DBS checks carried out. And MarslandTravel has provided the academy with the relevant assurances that their buses are safe to carry passengers and are road worthy.
A member of the Academy staff will meet and greet the students upon arrival at the Academy, and a member of staff will meet the students at the end of each day to ensure they are escorted to the bus.

If you require any further information regarding this service or have any queries relating to how to use ParentPay, please speak to a member of our finance team who will be happy to help.

Yours sincerely

Mr B Picton
Assistant Headteacher

Year 7 Football Team Into ESFA Cup Fourth Round

Wingfield’s Year 7 team progressed to the fourth round of the English Schools Cup with a sensational 9-6 victory at Wickersley on Wednesday evening.

With the scores tied at 6-6 following Irfan Bogle’s last second free kick to take the game into extra time, a calm and measured final 14 minutes saw the boys score three goals to get past the third stage of the nationwide competition.

In one of the most enthralling matches the Academy has ever witnessed, Wingfield took the lead four times at 2-0, 3-2, 4-3, and 5-4 before trailing 6-5 late on.

But with the last kick of the game, Irfan Bogle’s free kick gave the boys the least they deserved with a period of extra time, before three goals saw Wingfield eventually sail through the third round of the competition.

Adrian Nguea scored four goals, Jack Dudhill and Irfan two apiece, with Maddox Brooks also on the scoresheet.

The fourth round draw will be made on Monday 19th November.
