If you require different buses on different days, then you will need to complete a form for each bus. We require separate forms for each child requiring a bus.

For economic reasons, we cannot offer alternate week seats, and all fares are non-refundable for un-used journeys.

We can offer one off trips when needed, please contact the finance department to check availability for the journey you need, we would request that we have 48 hours’ notice for all one off journeys or one off amendments. Booking is essential as the majority of our buses are full.

Withdrawal from the service and permanent changes must be made by written advice to the finance office with half a term’s notice, otherwise fees will be charged due to insufficient notice.
