Number 42 Bus

Warrington’s Own Buses have asked us to advise you of the forthcoming closure of Massey Brook Lane, Lymm from next Monday 6th December until the end of term due to roadworks and will affect your service 42 school bus that normally operates from the Wrights Green/Appleton Thorn area then Knutsford Road (A50) and along Cliff Lane, Weaste Lane and Massey Brook Lane. The bus will be unable to operate along the latter three roads and will instead remain on Knutsford Road through to its junction with Stockport Road (A56), it will then divert along Stockport Road and Camsley Lane (A56) towards the School.

It is likely that most pupils affected by this road closure will travel from the Stoneleigh Gardens, Cuerdon Drive and Marie Drive end of Weaste Lane or from Massey Brook Lane, Massey Avenue or Beech Grove which are on the Lymm side of where the motorway viaduct crosses Massey Brook Lane, as these areas are where most housing is located.

Pupils from Stoneleigh Gardens, Cuerdon Drive, Marie Drive and the west end of Weaste Lane will need to board the bus on Knutsford Road near to the junction with Cliff Lane and Bellhouse Lane, the bus will stop alongside the white cottages on Knutsford Road, opposite a marked bus stop visible on the other side of the road.

Pupils from Massey Brook Lane, Massey Avenue and Beech Grove will need to board the bus from the bus stop on Camsley Lane/Booth’s Hill Road opposite the junction with Massey Brook Lane, this bus stop is already used by the other Lymm High School buses. I have been informed by Highways that pedestrian access will be maintained through the roadworks area on Massey Brook Lane.

These arrangements will also apply for alighting in the afternoon, service 42 operates a loop around Grappenhall and Appleton Thorn in the afternoon, normally this is after operating along Massey Brook Lane and Weaste Lane but because of the diversion the loop will be done before reaching the Knutsford Road/Cliff Lane drop off point.

Please click here for a copy of the roadworks map so you can see where the road closure will be (please note the side roads that are shown branching off Weaste Lane are not suitable for buses and so cannot be used to minimise the required diversion).

Consultation on draft Admissions Policy for 2023/24

Lymm High School is now consulting on the draft admissions policy for 2023/24. There is one proposed change to the admissions policy from that which was adopted when the school became an Academy in 2012 and is currently in force. This is a proposed amendment to the third category of the oversubscription criteria, which relates to medical conditions and has been updated to aid clarity. If you would like to send a response or make a comment in relation to the proposed arrangements, you can do so by emailing or writing as follows:

Email: admissions@lymmhigh.org.uk

Write to: Admissions Consultation,

Clerk to the Governors,

Lymm High School, Oughtrington Lane,

Lymm, Cheshire, WA13 0BR.

The consultation period will run from Friday 15th October 2021 – 3rd December 2021

COVID-19 Schools Infection Survey

If your Year 8 or Year 9 child is yet to take part in the COVID-19 Schools Infection Survey, it is not too late.  There is still time to register and receive a Home Antibody test kit.  Please click here to read a useful leaflet containing information about signing up.  Antibody home test kits will be sent to all new participants or participants who missed previous rounds due to unavailability e.g. absent from school. Deadline for new participants to sign up is 23rd January 2021.

Please note, for those children who took part in December’s testing, the next round has been cancelled.  Further information on future testing will be shared when known.  As part of the study, and to help experts gain a better understanding of the virus, ONS are asking you to fill out a questionnaire online, please click here to complete.

Confirmed Covid case

Dear parents and carers

Please read if your child has come to school this morning – this is for Year 9 students only.

As a result of a confirmed Covid case, we need your child to self-isolate and come home from school as soon as possible. Please can you arrange for them to be collected from school, or let Student Services (StudentServices@lymmhigh.org.uk) know that you give permission for them to walk home?

We will be in touch later regarding return date and work as soon as possible.  Siblings do not need to be picked up.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
