Subsidised Bus Travel
The Waveney Valley Academies Trust have agreed that transport will be subsidised by the school, with parents/carers contributing to the cost. The same charges will apply for our late bus routes.
Please see below links to our travel provider Border Bus:
The school late bus is available throughout the year on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with Mondays being an option for a period of time too (students will be made aware of this). Students are encouraged to book the late bus in the morning during tutor time but can also do so at the main school reception throughout the day.

Bus passes are issued at the start of the academic year by County and must be carried on all journeys. If the pass is lost, there is a replacement fee of £10 and a temporary pass will be issued by the school pending the replacement.
