Transport to School

The Metro site which gives all the information about school buses, passes etc can be found here.

If a pass is required for their chosen school service they must apply ASAP to guarantee a place. Priority is given to new intake but places will be allocated to older pupils after the application deadline in May.

All high school learners require a Metro Young Person’s Photo Card, which can be obtained from any bus station at a cost of £5, proof of age and a passport size photograph. Learners unable to get forms can collect one from school, but need to return the completed form to the bus station.

M-Travel provide a bus service morning and afternoon that runs through many of the outlying villages. Use of the bus is not restricted to school children but the service terminates outside the school gates.
