School Transport Parent Petition

One of our parents has set up a petition relating to funding for school transport post-16.

Students in Dorset have to pay over £700, yet those in London aged 16-18 get free bus and tram travel. The school leaving age has been extended but funding for transport hasn't.

COVID-19 - Please note that different arrangements may be in place to comply with COVID-19 requirements


It is not safe for us to allow parental access to the school site via the Tunnel Road entrance due to the number of buses, and Mountjoy traffic, at the beginning and end of school.


Please also avoid using Fleet Street and use the alternative drop-off points marked on the map wherever possible - Memorial Playing Fields or the Town Square, or Monmouth Gardens' layby.

If you do need to drop-off or pick-up then it must be before 8.30am or after 3.50pm.  


Please contact First Wessex direct on 01305 783645 with any bus queries.
