11 - 16 years

Financial support from the Council is provided depending on the length and nature of the journey.

Pupils aged between 11 and 16 years, living between 2 and 6 miles away from one of the 3 nearest secondary schools will be entitled to support if they get free school meals, or parents get the maximum level of working families tax credit at the time of application.

Contact the Pupil Service (Transport) for details.

If you have to travel to school or college on more than one bus you can apply for a refund for the second (and subsequent) bus journey.

This support is available for full time courses (i.e. at least 12 guided learning hours per week), and is not means- tested.

Contact the Pupil Service (Transport) for details.
