Charges for our transport, for out-of-catchment students are tiered according to distance from school.  Our own transport zones work as follows:

  • Zone B: nearest collection point to home – between 10-15 miles as the crow flies from school.
  • Zone C: nearest collection point to home – 15 miles and above as the crow flies from school.

The charge for the 2021/22 academic year for our own transport is:

  • Zone A: £390 per student for the academic year, which is £2.05 per day
  • Zone B: £435 per student for the academic year, which is £2.30 per day
  • Zone C: £480 per student for the academic year, which is £2.53 per day

Students in Years 7-11 who come to us from within catchment, but live more than 3 miles from school, will have transport provided by NYCC.  Students in Years 12 and 13 who live in catchment, but live more than 3 miles from school should contact NYCC in the first instance and apply for a paid permit to travel on NYCC transport.

Adverse Weather Arrangements

School Closure

We aim to stay open wherever possible, so even if the buses do not run, school will be open for local students.  On the very rare occasions where school is closed completely the school will contact the local radio stations who broadcast information on school closures.  Please click here for BBC Radio York and here for Greatest Hits Radio (York & North Yorkshire).  Notification will also be made on the school facebook account.
