Costs and payments

The current annual cost (Sept 2021) to parents for the transport service is £570 per year, payable in 10 monthly instalments, via ParentMail one month in advance. Please note this cost is reviewed annually and subject to a price increase in line with inflation. The actual Sept 2022 annual transport charge will be communicated in June when demand for the service has been finalised. The school is committed to offering a reliable and affordable transport offer to our families and as such the school heavily subsidises the transport service by £250 per child per academic year.  The contribution that families make to the provision ensures that service remains viable moving forward.

ID Transport Card

Transport passes will be issued to all students when registered on the transport service. These passes will need to be shown the bus driver when getting on the bus.
