College Prospectus

Transport from/to Thetford - September 2017

The College has recently been informed by County Transport for Schools that unfortunately the public bus service, operated by Coach Services, which currently runs from Thetford to Thurston Community College will cease to operate from September 2017, due to the bus route not being financially viable.

However parents/carers may apply to Passenger Transport for 'spare seats' which may be available on the County Transport bus that runs from Barnham.  Full details on transport from Thetford can be found in the letter below, along with further details on Passenger Transport 'Spare Seat Policy'

Passenger Transport wrote to all parents/carers at the end of May 2017 with regard to photo bus passes.

All students starting Thurston Community College in September 2017 will need to upload a photo regardless if they currently have a photo bus pass.  Bus pass photos must be uploaded to http://scch2s.euclidcard.com/index.aspx by 30 June 2017.

All photo bus passes will be printed and distributed by the middle of July 2017.  If a parent has not received their child's photo bus pass by then, please can they contact Passenger Transport customer.service@suffolk.gov.uk or telephone on 0345 606 6173.


 

New Intake Days / Evenings

Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 July 2017

Your child is invited to attend both New Intake Days. They will get to know their Academic Tutor and their new classmates as they take the next step in becoming members of our community. They will take part in team building and orientation activities and experience ‘taster’ lessons. In all activities, they will be supported by our team of Senior Prefects. When students arrive at the College they should wait outside the main reception area, where they will be collected. Students should attend in their current school uniform on both days, please can your ensure your child has a basic stationary pencil case with them when they visit.  They will also need to bring either a packed lunch or money to purchase a school dinner. Students should arrive by 8.45am latest and the school day finishes at 3.20pm.

All parents and students are invited to attend our New Intake Evenings, during the evening you will be asked to fill out some data collection sheets and your child will be invited to complete their biometric scan for our cashless catering system.
