Assistance with Travel to and from School for Families on Low Income and/or Students with Additional Needs

If you would like more information on assistance with travel, please contact the relevant transport providers.

Behaviour on Buses

We expect high standards of behaviour and conduct from our students travelling to and from school. Anyone misbehaving on buses is liable to have his/her bus pass withdrawn by the LEA for a fixed period of time. It will then be the individual’s responsibility to make alternative arrangements for getting to and from school.

As the oldest students on the bus, we also ask that you alert school if behaviour from younger students is not as you would or should expect.

Cycling

There are bike sheds in front of the Glusburn building where students must leave their bike if they are cycling. Bikes must be secured with a padlock (brought by the student).

Driving and Parking

Students can apply to bring their car onto the school site.

Permission is granted on a need basis, with priority given to students who travel the greatest distance or who have a disability. To apply for a permit, students need to bring a photocopy of their driving licence and insurance certificate.

Students are expected to adhere to the regulations of the car park and any violation will result in the removal of the privilege.

Getting a Lift

Students can be dropped off at the main entrance or at Fieldhead Drive.

Train

Our nearest train station is Steeton and Silsden.
