Twilight Bus Service & Twilight Activity Programme
During term time, on a Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursdays, students living in the surrounding villages are supported by the provision of a Twilight Bus Service, which enable them to take part in activities after school and get a free bus home at 5.00pm. On a Monday there is also a limited service to a number of local villages.
The Twilight Bus Service, which is now into its seventh year in operation, has proved to be a great success among both students and parents, and has opened up so many opportunities to the young people who use it.
HSLC aims to support all students and to encourage them to participate fully in the wide variety of after school sports, activity clubs, performing arts, drama, music and study support activities, including access to the Learning Resources Centre and ICT / computer facilities, which we promote through our Twilight Activity Programme each school term.
Free travel to villages in HSLC’s catchment area
The aim of the Twilight Bus Service is to provide free travel to as many Hornsea area/catchment villages as possible. The service is delivered using a combination of an existing commercial bus plus two tailor-made minibus/taxi services that makes up a total of 3-4 routes.
Supporting students from rural areas
As well as providing equality of opportunity for all students and support for working parents, the Twilight Bus Service ensures that students who live in rurally isolated areas are enabled to participate in the many activities on offer. The initiative has had the added environmental benefit of greatly reducing the number of parental car journeys to the school site; a welcome result in these days of global warming!
How the Twilight Bus Service Operates
Students wishing to travel on any of the Twilight Bus routes will need to follow a set procedure that is dependant upon the route they need to take.
Please Note the Following
Students using the service buses (240 and 246) MUST use valid tickets to hand to the driver, available from the front office
Students using other routes (see timetable via link above) MUST book their place via the font office (limited number of seats available only)
The Twilight Bus Service does not allow students to travel beyond the villages listed above. Any student wishing to travel to Hull or Beverley will be asked to pay an additional fare by the bus driver
HSLC cannot guarantee a seat will be available for a student that does not book in advance and by 2pm on the day required. Any student wishing to use the 240 or 246 route without a valid ticket will not be permitted to travel. Twilight Bus Service tickets may only be used on the advertised routes and times.
