  1. DECLARATION – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY To be completed by parent or guardian
    1. I have checked the Farepayer Scheme guide to determine whether I qualify for a guaranteed place on a school bus. I understand that if I do not qualify for a guaranteed place, there may not be any transport available.

    2. I agree to pay the relevant cost, as detailed in the current Farepayer Scheme guide.

      The Standard Rate applies to all primary, secondary and Post 16 students. The Standard Rate is £703 for the 17/18 school year and £726 for the 18/19 school year.

      The price of a train pass varies according to the journey. Please contact us to confirm the cost of your particular journey.

      I understand that transport for Farepayers is only awarded for one year at a time, so I will need to reapply every year.
