New minibuses will help with student activities such as orienteering and mountain biking
Ormesby School in Middlesbrough has recently taken delivery of two new minibuses to help students get out and about more often.
Experts from Simon Bailes Peugeot’s fleet department worked with staff at the school to help them choose the best and most cost-effective minibuses to suit their needs.
The specially-adapted Peugeot Boxer minibuses were selected thanks to their versatility and their ability to be adapted for wheelchair and easy access.
Ormesby School now plans to use the new vehicles to transport students to their Outdoor Education Centre at Baldersdale where they enjoy activities such as orienteering, mountain biking and residential stays. In addition, the new minibuses mean that the sports’ teams can now take part in more fixtures across Teesside.
Simon Bailes Peugeot has over 30 years’ experience in specialist fleet sales and works with a host of businesses and organisations to help them find the best vehicle to suit their needs.
Cathy Fidgeon, school business manager at Ormesby School, said: “We really didn’t want a standard minibus- we needed several modifications to it so that it would last us a long time and allow all students to take part in many activities. The fleet team at Simon Bailes Peugeot gave us such useful advice and guidance so that we now have vehicles that not only really suit what we need but are also incredibly cost effective too.”
