@BartonPeveril Sixth Form College students who completed their Duke of Edinburgh’s (@DofE) Awards in the 2019/20 academic year have been commended for their volunteering efforts, by the national youth awards programme.
Two @BartonPeveril Sixth Form College students have successfully continued their Silver Duke of Edinburgh (@DofE) Awards, despite the difficulties imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown. Oliver Bown and Sophie Wade are now on course to receive their awards as planned this autumn.
@bartonpeveril will subsidise bus transport for all of its students, who use @Xelabus and @BluestarHQ buses, throughout the 2020/21 academic year. As a result of the College’s pledge, annual bus passes on Xelabus and Bluestar will be significantly reduced from £650 to £350.
Barton Peveril have supported its students throughout the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and continue to do so with this subsidy scheme. Due to Government guidelines potentially limiting the number of times students attend lessons on campus, and therefore use their bus passes, the College has subsidised the regular price to reflect this.
