School Transport Charge 

The cost of operating the transport system is covered by parent/carer payments. Passenger numbers have slightly increased this year hence a small reduction in the costs. As this is calculated on a whole school basis, it is not possible to make any reductions for Y11 students given their final day at school is officially some 3 weeks earlier than the rest of the school.

The transport charge for 2021/22 will be £1320 per year per student. This can be paid as follows:

  • £1320 per annum per student
  • £440 per term per student
  • £132 per month per student for 10 months

Payment on Wisepay will now count as an application and will trigger the inclusion printing of bus passes which will be issued to students on their first day of term. Bus stops will be allocated according to the closest stop on the list to student addresses, but if you would like an alternative that is also on the list please email: transport@stbedes.cambs.sch.uk 

The above costs are per student. Bus passes are issued on a termly basis if sufficient payment has been received. Bus pass checks are made every half term. Students are required to present their bus pass every morning and evening to the bus driver.

Temporary Bus Passes 2021 / 22

Temporary bus passes for alternative routes can be issued subject to availability.  There will be no further cost for students who have paid to use the Transport System. For students who do not use the Transport System, there will be a cost of £5.00 per single journey (£10.00 per return journey). 

Payments 

The preferred method of payment is Wisepay where you can choose to pay Monthly / Termly / Annual

If you prefer to pay by Standing Order please contact transport@stbedes.cambs.sch.uk for school bank details and payment dates. Please note, however, standing orders need to be set up directly between the customer and the bank. 

Some secondary school children may qualify for help with transport costs under 'Extended Secondary Rights for Low Income Families'. To do so, your child must meet the following criteria:

  • be entitled to free school meals or be from a family receiving the maximum level of Working Families Tax Credit (with no reduction due to income) 
  • be attending secondary school at one of their 3 nearest schools between 2 and 6 miles from their home address or their nearest denominational school (on grounds of religion or belief) between 2 and 15 miles from their home address
