School and college travel assistance Direct Debit scheme

Updates - 14 August 2020

20/21 Payments

We will be starting to send payment letters out during the week commencing 17 August.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer the option to pay by Direct Debit for the Autumn Term at this time, 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 Spring Term 2021.

Contribution Rates

We had previous advised that we were reviewing the contribution amounts for School Transport.  Please note that this has now been delayed and will not change for the 2020/2021 Academic Year.
