Getting to and from College

We offer transport through a network of buses and minibuses along major routes. Created annually in response to demand during our recruitment year, our routes cover key towns across the region. Although some of our transport has facilities for disabled access, we are happy to discuss alternative methods of transport for students with disabilities or require extra assistance.

Transport Code of Conduct 2023-24:

We know that most students behave well on College transport, but occasionally the behaviour and actions
of a few can make the journey unpleasant for everyone and can sometimes endanger other passengers.

We have a Code of Conduct because we want everyone to stay safe and travel in comfort. If you follow
the guidelines your journey to college will be safe and enjoyable.

To ensure that this happens we require all students to follow a few simple rules.
If you don’t keep to the Code of Conduct your parents or carers will be informed and you may not be able
to use College transport anymore.

The College reserves the right to issue either a fixed term or permanent ban from using transport for those
students demonstrating poor behaviours. If this happens, you are still expected to maintain your
attendance record in order to pass your course and it will be up to you to find suitable alternative transport.
