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.

There are also a number of public bus routes that run directly to, or near the school. These are:

  • BR003 – To Willingham Hall
  • BR020 – From Southwold
  • BR021 – From Halesworth
  • BR027 – From North Cove

The school have also been working with First Buses and they have extended the X2 bus service (click here for details) so that it comes past SET Beccles School.  The school holds bus passes for the X2 service that can be issued to students on production of a passport size photograph.

Suffolk County Council runs a school transport entitlement hotline for those who wish to check whether they are eligible for free transport. The telephone number is 03456 066173.
