Transport

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 NYC.  Students in Years 12 and 13 who live in catchment, but live more than 3 miles from school should contact NYC in the first instance and apply for a paid permit to travel on NYC transport. (For further information on post 16 transport provided by NYC click here).

For students who live out of catchment, Malton School has been has been offering its own transport for many years and has an excellent out-of-catchment service.  The school currently operates 8 routes for students in Years 7-13.  Full details of the zones and charging can be found by clicking our Transport Zone List

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

  • Zone A: nearest collection point to home – over 3 miles and up to 10 miles as the crow flies from school.
  • 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 2023/24 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

Please note, our routes are very popular and often have a waiting list, especially mid-year.  We re-plan our routes in April every year to take account of student intake for the September as well as the current waiting list.  If you are moving house part-way through a school year or are moving into the school catchment area, please do contact us in the first instance to discuss school transport.

Early Bus Departures

Where a bus company has told us that they need to run the homeward journey early, we will also notify parents by email as soon as we can.  If the weather is deteriorating quickly we might not be able to give you much notice.  Please make sure your child’s phone is charged and they have credit so that you can contact them to let them know where they should go to be safe when they get home.

There may be occasions when the buses cannot run at all.  If this is the case and you decide to bring your child in yourself, you should ensure that you can collect them at the end of the normal school day as the buses may still not be running.

Delayed / Late Buses

  • Students: If your bus doesn’t arrive, please stay at the stop for at least 20 minutes as the bus could have been delayed earlier in the route. If you have waited 20 minutes and the bus still hasn’t arrived, go home and tell your parents.  They may have already heard from school and can tell you what you need to do.  If they have not heard from school, they should telephone school on 01653 692828 or 605337 to advise us that the bus hasn’t arrived and to find out what other arrangements have been made.
  • Parents: Where a bus company has told us that a bus will not run, we will send out an email message telling you what alternative arrangements have been made. The message will go to the person you nominated as the first priority contact.  Please make sure that you notify us if you change email accounts.  We recommend that this should be an email account that you can monitor easily in bad weather.  Some bus operators keep contact details for the students using their buses and they may telephone you themselves to tell you if the bus is late or not running.

School Closure / Adverse Weather

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.

If a bus is running but you feel that the journey would not be safe for your child, for example, if your journey to the pick-up point would be risky, please telephone school to let us know that they will not be in school.
