Many of our students travel to school each day and a number of buses and taxis are operated to transport children from surrounding villages. This transport is co-ordinated by Cornwall County Council. It should be noted that free school transport is generally limited to those children attending their designated school or nearest school with a place available.
Apply for Transport
Eligibility criteria for free home to school transport is set out within Cornwall Council’s Home to School Transport Policy 2020/21

Expectations for Behaviour
We want every student’s journey to and from school to be as safe as possible. We know that the majority of pupils behave well on school transport, but occasionally the behaviour of some can make the journey unpleasant or endanger others. We continue to work closely with Cornwall County Council to ensure that every journey is calm and settled. Our expectations of student behaviour can be found here.
We expect all students to agree to and abide by our Codes of Good Practice.
Poor behaviour will not be tolerated. We reserve the right, should students be involved in incidences of poor behaviour, to suspend them for one week from school transport. Please be aware that during this time it is the parents’ responsibility to make alternative transport arrangements to ensure continued attendance at school. Should students continue to demonstrate poor behaviour they may have their transport offer withdrawn completely.
