Some children will be eligible for a free pass issued by Bolton Local Authority; Pupil and Student Services. They will contact you if your child is eligible for the pass.

At the end of the school day pupils should make their way to the  yard and join the appropriate queue. They will be directed onto buses by staff on duty.

Pupils should remember that they are representatives of their school when travelling on public transport. We expect high standards of behaviour and dress at all times.

In the event of missing the school bus at the end of the school day, pupils should know how to get home using the normal bus services. It is helpful to have a telephone contact number to inform someone of the delay or arrange to be collected.
