School and college travel

Last updated 12 April 2021

In light of the continued and rising increase in community transmission and COVID infection rates, Worcestershire County Council with advice from Public Health have decide to make the wearing of face coverings mandatory on Home to School Transport from Tuesday 6 October.

Children under the age of 11 will be exempt and the council will follow the same guidance that is in place for Public Transport.

Worcestershire County Council is working with schools to ensure they will have a supply of face coverings for those pupils who do not currently have one and these will be available from school.

Refunds Spring 2021

Spring 1 half term and Spring and Annual pro rata refunds covering 1 January to 8 March have now all been processed and should be received by the end of February.

Direct Debits Summer Term 2021

Unfortunately, we are still unable to offer the option to pay by Direct Debit for the Summer Term if you did not pay by Direct Debit last year, due to constraints in processing and setting up new mandates. We are hoping that we will be able to offer this option for 2021 to 2022.
