 Schools Transport 4116L and 4117K  - Asgill/Netherburn

We have been informed by Whitelaw's that the above two contracts will be affected by roadworks from 1 – 5 March 2021.   John Street will be temporarily restricted and Whitelaw's have advised they will have to re-route via Keir Hardie Road, Larkhall.  There will be no disruption to picking up and dropping off, just this diversion.

Bus Passes

Please note that pupils will require to have their bus pass with them to travel on the school bus. This will take effect as of Monday 26 October 2020. All passes have been issued, including the new versions for travel on both Ashgill/Netherburn buses. In the event of any pupil misplacing or forgetting their pass, they should report to the school office to request a letter to permit travel. Should a replacement pass be required, you can arrange this directly via Whitelaws on (01698) 792800. The current cost for this is £3.00. 


I am happy to assist with any matters relating to our school transport.


Mrs Patricia Boyd
