Two people were taken to hospital after a lorry crashed into the back of a bus on the morning school run to JCoSS.

The school confirmed no students were seriously injured in the incident which took place on Monday morning.

The London Ambulance Service were called to reports of a road traffic collision on Cockfosters Road at approximately 8.30am yesterday.

A spokesman for the service said: “We dispatched an incident response officer, a medic in a response car and three ambulance crews. We also dispatched our hazardous area response team.

“We assessed a number of people at the scene. We took two patients to hospital: one of these to a major trauma centre.”

One of the parents who were at the scene revealed her daughter suffered a friction burn to her nose from the seat in front. “The school was fantastic and so were the emergency services,” she told Jewish News.

JCoSS headteacher Patrick Moriarty said: “We have been extraordinarily proud of our students throughout this incident.  Their behaviour, resilience and maturity have been a huge credit to them and to the school.

“We have contacted the police as a matter of routine today, but are not aware of any information on the condition of the lorry driver.”
