Return your application form to us by email or by post.

For bus passes you should either:

  • email a photo in a JPEG format, with the name of the pupil in the subject line. You can send a picture from your phone if the photo is a head shot against a neutral background

Remember to include any proof of low income, such as your Tax Credit Notice TC602 with your application.

The closing date for applications for travel to college or sixth form is 30 September each year.
