School transport for 5 to 16 year olds

Your child may be able to get free transport to school if they live further from their school than the walking distance allowed by law or if you’re on a low income. It will depend on where you live and which school your child goes to.

Faith schools

We no longer provide transport to faith schools based on a religious preference for children starting at those schools for the first time.  If you are on a low income then you may still be able to get transport, contact us to find out.

If your child is already receiving transport to a faith school under previous arrangements they will keep getting this service as long as their circumstances have not changed e.g. change of address, moving school or moving to another stage of education. To get this transport you will still need to make an application and pay each year.

2019/2020 academic year

The transport application form for the 2019/2020 academic year is now available. The transport charge is £800 for the academic year. You can pay by debit or credit card in one lump sum or in up to 8 monthly instalments.
