Transport Information

General Information

Please make sure your child has their bus pass on them at all times.  

 In Catchment Transport:  Provided by Hampshire Passenger Transport 01962 846924. 

Out-of-Catchment:  Please contact the school  

 

Travel Insurance

Your child is only covered by insurance if they have applied for a place on a school bus.  If County Transport have not issued you with a bus pass, then you are not insured to travel on the school bus.

 

Provision of free travel

Hampshire Local Authority will advise you if your child qualifies for free transport, either on a school bus or public transport.  To qualify you need to:

  • Attend the catchment school or one that is nearer to your home, and
  • The distance (measured by the shortest available walking route) is more than three miles for children from Year 4 to Year 11, or
  • Your catchment school was your first preference and it was over-subscribed.  In this case, we will provide transport to the next closest school, using the distances in the previous paragraph.


Late Buses

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday late buses operate leaving the school at 5.15pm

These buses operate a basic skeleton route covering some areas, please speak to School Reception for areas covered, which alters depending on demand.  Stops are added where necessary, hence the journey can take longer some nights and children should not be unduly concerned if the bus takes a slightly different route each time. 

 

All pupils participating in after-school activities can use these buses. Pupils must collect a pass from their after-school teacher to enable them to travel on the bus home.  Children will be unable to travel on the buses without a pass. 

 

The late buses will stop at stops asked for by the child upon boarding the bus.  Please remind your child to let the driver know where they need to get off.

 

Privilege seats

If your child does not qualify for travelling expenses, you may apply for him to be a 'privilege' passenger on school transport. This will depend on whether there are spare seats and only applies if the vehicle is contracted by Hampshire County Council to transport children. The privilege place can be withdrawn at short notice if it is needed for a child who qualifies for free transport.

 

There is a flat-rate charge for privilege seats which is the same for all children whatever their age or the distance travelled. If you receive income support, or income-based job seeker's allowance, you do not have to pay. All drivers are checked either by the school or the local authority; the Vehicle Operating Standards Agency carries out checks on vehicles.

 

Out of Catchment students can purchase an annual bus pass to travel on transport arranged by the school servicing the areas of Tadley, Basingstoke and Andover.  We are currently looking to extend this service to other areas.  Please contact Mrs J Piper, School Business Manager, for more information.
