  • be involved in part time training whilst volunteering

Some students will have had free home to school transport but this ends when you finish year 11.

How you will get to your school or college is your choice but you may want to consider:

  • asking the school or college to see if they arrange any transport themselves
  • applying to the 16-19 bursary fund who may be able to help you with your travel costs
