School Transport

For safety reasons, we would advise only students with a valid ticket for school transport will be permitted to travel on school transport services.

School Transport Fees waived for 2022/23

The Government has announced initiatives to assist families with children returning to school in September, including removing fees from school transport for the coming academic year. 

The Department of Education announcement and answers to frequently asked questions can be found here.

Applications

Applications for the school year 2022/23 must have been made by Friday 29 April 2022. All applications received after that date are deemed late, and may not be guaranteed a seat or a service.

Applications for pupils with special educational needs arising from a diagnosed disability should be made through The National Council for Special Education.
