Just the ticket: Nottingham City Transport donate bus to Arnold school which will now be revamped into learning space

Pupils at a school in Arnold are preparing to welcome the arrival of a bus which will be revamped into a learning space.

The vehicle has been kindly donated to Coppice Farm Primary School by Nottingham City Transport.

The bus, which is expected to arrive in the spring, was a former training vehicle and will now be transformed into a classroom.

The transport firm donated the bus following a twitter appeal from the school’s deputy head teacher Donna Quarless.

An NCT team visited the school before Christmas to confirm the location of the bus and engineers are now preparing the vehicle for its arrival.

NCT marketing manager Anthony Carver-Smith said: “Following a record breaking year of investment, with 77 brand new buses entering service with Nottingham City Transport in 2019, we had a small number of buses to donate to the local communities we serve.

“After one of our bendy buses was transformed in to a school library in Chilwell a couple of years ago, donating one to Coppice Farm Primary School for another exciting school project was an obvious choice, particularly as the bus was used to teach bus drivers how to drive and will now have a new life teaching young people in Arnold.”
