Sixth Form students can travel on the school buses but a bus permit needs to be applied for and purchased from North Yorkshire County Council.

The current annual cost for a bus permit is £490. Some students can receive assistance with these costs if they are eligible for the sixth form bursary.  Students eligible for a post-16 travel permit who also qualify for funding from the 16-19 bursary fund should notify the school of their transport arrangements as soon as possible. This will enable the school to liaise with the post-16 transport team to organise payment for the permit on their behalf.

Post-16 Paid Travel Permits

This is a scheme run by North Yorkshire County Council that provides subsidised assistance with transport for eligible students aged 16-19 years (18 years at the start of their course). Applications can be made online at any time but should be submitted before 31st July in order to receive a pass before the start of term.

Full details can be viewed by following this link to the Council’s website.

It is recommended that all students who think they meet the eligibility criteria for a post-16 paid travel permit contact the post-16 transport team on 01609 533693 or email: as soon as possible prior to seeking a place to travel on college transport.
