School transport

Information on school transport, including the home to school transport policy.

Update on School Bus Passes (Smart Cards for school contracts)

The cards are now being printed and will be sent direct to your home address by second class post, although some might arrive a few days later than planned. In the unlikely event that you do not receive your bus pass or travel information in time for the new term, temporary arrangements are in place to allow your child to travel.

Update on Scholars Bus Passes (passes to use public bus routes)

The cards will be available from your school on the first day of term. A letter will be sent direct to your home address by 1 September 2016, which will allow you to travel on the first day of term.

If you have any questions about the new process, please contact School Transport.
