If your child is not eligible for free transport, they maybe entitled to a spare seat on contract coaches or taxis. Spare seats are hired out to pupils or students not entitled to a free seat, once all the pupils entitled to a seat have been allocated theirs.
Concessionary seats are not guaranteed. They can be withdrawn (and a refund given) if the seat is later needed for a pupil entitled to a free seat.
Please see a copy of the letter we send out to parents who enquire about the availability of a concessionary seat for their child, for more information on the criteria for concessionary seats and the cost.
You can apply for a concessionary seat by completing a Concessionary seat application form (PDF).
You will need to apply by 31 July to be considered for a seat from September. We do not consider applications for concessionary seats in minibuses/taxis until the October half term.
