In the case of snowfall

Should we have heavy snowfall, please check the website and our Twitter @RastrickHigh for updates. Please do not ring school.

Please note that text messages will  only sent out when the school is closed. However, should the website be down, we will then send a text message. 

Bus information update

As you may be aware Arriva service 278 will be withdrawn and Yorkshire Tiger will introduce a new route X78/78 in partial replacement.  Unfortunately, this would have meant that around a dozen Rastrick students wouldn’t have been be able to get to school without changing buses.

To compensate for this, Yorkshire Tiger will amend their 563 journey at 0750 from Halifax: this will be retimed to depart at 0745 and re-routed via Thornhill Road and Bramston Street in Rastrick. This should help to accommodate those pupils affected.

This will be in effect from the 26th February.
