There is no minimum but we very much hope that parents book in for the whole week. Priority at all times will be given to those who do book for the full week and then it is on a first-come-first-served basis. The charge for the Autumn Term will be £3.75 per journey per child.

Should you like to use the service, please complete the form below but clicking the ‘reply’ button as soon as possible to secure your child’s place on the bus and to enable us to organise the drivers.

The times stated are departure times and the drivers cannot wait for late comers. If you will not make the bus then you must text the driver to let them know. Contact details will be given out before the term starts.
