How to apply

Changing school in September?

When a pupil moves school as part of the general admissions process (for example starting school or moving from primary to secondary school) you will be advised what the arrangements are for applying for travel assistance.

Applications during the year

If you need to apply for travel help at other times, please read our policy before completing the application form either online or by post.

It may take up to 20 working days after approval of your application to arrange travel assistance.

You are expected to make and pay for your own travel arrangements during this time.




Applying online

The quickest and easiest way to apply is online

Please note: the system will be unavailable due to essential maintenance on Monday 21 September 2020, 2pm until 3pm.
