Getting to School

A comprehensive private bus service brings pupils into the College from a wide area, extending as far afield as Nuneaton and Coventry to the north, Lutterworth and Daventry to the east, Stratford-upon-Avon and Banbury to the south and Solihull to the west.

Charges for Bus Services - Autumn 2019

All bus users will need to show a pass or a ticket. Those without either will still be able to travel, but the drivers will ask users to complete a simple form to allow us to check that fares have been paid. We reserve the right to impose a penalty fare if there is frequent non-compliance on the part of a specific individual who is unable to show a valid pass or ticket. Defaced passes will be replaced automatically at a cost of £5 per issue.

Pupils should ensure they have a bus pass or ticket for travel. Where the charge for tickets has to be added to the bill there will be an additional administration fee.

Sibling Discounts
Discounts are applied to bus passes only for siblings (10% for second and 50% for third and subsequent siblings) whilst there are two or more children holding bus passes.


Tickets - Single Fares

Tickets for single fares are available from the School Shop and need to be bought in advance of a journey. They will be valid until the end of the school year in which they are bought. Where pupils do not have a ticket to present the charge for the journey will be added to the next fee bill.
