New School Year

30th Aug 2022

Dear Parents / Carers,

I hope you all had a pleasant summer break and are enjoying the last few days of the summer weather.

I am writing to you all to make you aware of some disruption to the existing access to school, mainly our front gate. The DFI has made us aware that the main road from the cinema car park to school will be closed for approximately 3 months from 1st September to facilitate the construction of the new St. Patrick’s Regeneration Link Road.

Please find a letter and map attached from DfI Roads explaining access arrangements to the main gate from Trostan Avenue.

St Patrick’s Link Road – Operation of Seven Towers car park during construction

We wish to keep this disruption to a minimum for all our children and young people. In order to do so we request that pupils are not dropped off to school any earlier than 8.45am each day. Pick up time at the end of the school day remains 2.45pm for parents / carers, EA transport will have staggered pick up times to keep traffic minimised on site.

We are all looking forward to welcoming your child / young person into school on Thursday 1st September.

Kindest regards,

Alick Ford

Acting Principal

Castle Tower School
