Statement:College Coach Incident
7 January 2020
On the afternoon of the 7th of January 2020, the Eastbourne coach departing Plumpton College with 33 students on board was involved in a traffic incident shortly after departing college.
Emergency services arrived at the scene promptly, and 6 students were taken to Brighton Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. A member of Plumpton College staff accompanied these students to the hospital and their parents have been kept fully informed.
All remaining students were returned safely to college and collected by parents or taken home by college transport.
All bus routes will be operating as usual tomorrow morning to bring students to college.
We are extremely proud of how our students and staff conducted themselves this evening.
