Transport to School

General Information

Please note that school transport arrangements can vary from year to year.

School transport places need to be applied and are normally allocated for the duration of a school year. If school transport is required for a subsequent school year, a further application needs to be made.

Applications for school transport places start to be taken from May in any school year for the next school year starting in September. As places are limited, it is recommended that you apply early to secure a place and in any event before the end of the school Summer term in mid-July.

Applications received after mid-July may be unlikely to secure a school transport place from September.

Students in Years 7-11

For students who qualify for free school transport their entitlement is determined by OCC and transport passes are issued by them. Applications where students are required to pay for school transport, in most cases need to be made to the transport operator directly to reserve a seat.

Sixth Form students

Students attending Sixth Form are required to apply and pay for school transport if this is required. Places are subject to availability on particular routes with the application process being the same for students in Years 7-11.

Financial support

The Headteacher holds a Student Support Fund which has limited funds available to provide financial support to families for the cost of school transport. Applications for financial support need to be made in writing to the Headteacher by completion of the relevant form and providing supporting documentation. Each case is considered on an individual basis and within the funding available which varies from year to year. Anybody wanting to apply should contact the school in the first instance.

School Late Bus Service

The school provides a late bus service to provide a means of transportation for those students who attend after-school activities on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. (Please note that there is no late bus service on Wednesdays and Friday evenings).

Students needing to use the late bus service need to sign-up for a late bus pass at either break or lunchtime at the Finance Office on the day they need to use the service. At 2.00pm passenger lists are finalised and for insurance purposes cannot be added to.

If students, subsequently do not require their late bus pass they must inform the Finance Office, as their non-arrival may delay the departure of the late bus.

After-school activities commence once the normal school day has finished at 3.00pm and run until 4.30pm. Late buses arrive at 4.30pm and depart from the school at 4.40pm.

The school provides two late buses. One bus travels north from Burford and the other goes south. The Bakers late bus, which runs north, stops at Minster Lovell, Field Assarts, Leafield, Ascott-under Wychwood, Milton, Shipton and Upper Rissington. The Pulhams late bus, which runs south, stops at Bradwell Village, Shilton, Alvescot, Langford, Filkins, Lechlade, Clanfield, Black Bourton, Bampton, Brize Norton and Carterton. These two buses provide a means of transport for all students to access, which primarily serve destinations within the boundary of the original school catchment area.

The service aims to ensure that students using the late buses do not have more than an hour’s travel time, so the last drop-off is aimed to be no later than 5.45pm however, drop-off times can vary depending upon how many students are travelling on each late bus and how many stops need to be made on a particular evening.
