In September 2019 the school successfully launched a bus service for all children in school. The service is provided by Moving People, a reputable local transport provider in Blackburn. This transport service means that we can offer a limited number of places on the bus to children who feel that they would benefit from using a bus to travel to and from school.  For these children there will be a charge.  The cost of the transport will be set at £2.50 per day return.  We are offering this service either on an instalment basis or to be paid in advance.  Bookings are now being taken for the period of Autumn half term 1 – Thursday 2nd September 2021 to Friday 22nd October 2021

Please note that the service will start on Thursday 2nd September from the end of school that day and will be free on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd as children in different year groups have different start times.

The paid service will commence on Monday 6th September when all children are back in school.

The cost of the service is as follows:

  • 1 x payment of £92.50
  • 6 Instalments with a cumulative cost of £92.50

In order to reserve your place(s) please log onto your ParentPay account via the school website, select the trip titled ‘School Bus Service 1 21.22’, pay the full amount or first instalment and agree to the terms and conditions by Friday 27th August 2021.  If you agree to pay by instalments, then you must keep up with the payment plan or your child will lose their place on the bus. Once payment is made we will contact you to confirm how your child(ren) can start to use the service.  If you have any further enquiries please contact the school on

If you have a child(ren) starting in Year 7 this September and are interested in using this service please contact the school on and confirm your intention to use the service giving your child’s full name and the primary school from where they have just finished.  We will then write out to you with further details of how to access the service as you don’t yet have access to ParentPay.
