Spaces on the transport offered by the school are limited and offered on a first come first served and best efforts bases.

Charges apply for use of the school transport which are payable termly in advance. Our bus behaviour policy must be followed. Failure to pay for school transport may result in your child losing their place and, if applicable, it being offered to someone on a waiting list.

If a student stops using a bus route mid-term they will not receive a refund of the bus fare unless we can fill the space with another student and the minibus/coach is full.  By making a payment you are agreeing to these terms.
