Tickets for Private paying students for September 2016

We will be routing and allocating privately paying students throughout the summer holidays.  Confirmation of places will not be sent out until mid/late August due to final loading lists of Essex County Council entitled students coming through to us throughout the summer holidays.

If you haven’t done so already you must apply online via this link and form: Private Tickets 2015/2016  You must complete one form per child.  If you have already been travelling over the previous years you must reapply each year in order for us to know you require transport in the forthcoming year.  If we do not receive an application we will not be able to allocate a space for your child.


Tickets for Essex County Council students for September 2016

If you have a place on one of our routes via Essex County Council it is worth checking with Essex if you have to reapply for the following years.  In more cases than not you do not have to reapply but, for example, if your child is transferring from year 11 to year 12 it is likely you will have to reapply.   Please contact the Passenger Transport team on 0845 603 2200.


Bus passes for 2016/2017

Bus passes for both Essex County Council entitled students and privately paying students will be printed at the beginning of September and sent to the school for collection in the first few weeks of term.  The driver of the vehicle your child is allocated to will have the name of your child on a loadlist and will be able to let the children travel without a pass for the first few weeks in order to give your child time to collect their pass at the school
