We have been working closely with Arriva Travel, by offering the Arriva scholar bus pass scheme.
This has proved very popular with students using the Arriva bus service, offering a substantial saving on a standard ticket and enabling the costs of the pass to be spread over the academic year.
We have therefore decided to continue to offer the scheme for the academic year 2019/2020
The cost for the yearly pass for 2019/2020 is £230. This can be paid monthly at £23 per month for 10 months.
Passes will be available to purchase via ParentPay and will be valid from the beginning of the school year in September 2019 up to the last day of the summer term in July 2020. They can be used on weekdays before and after the school day, as well as for home/school transport.
I’m sure you will agree that £23 per month represents excellent value as compared to a daily pass rate of £2.20 for under 18’s.
For your reassurance, the passes will only hold a serial number, with no photograph or personal details required, so it is completely GDPR (Data Protection) compliant.
If you wish to take advantage of this bus pass scheme please pay £23 via ParentPay. Passes will be issued by the Finance Department at the school at the start of the month following the payment.
Further monthly payments of £23 will be required before the start of the month of travel.
