The pricing structure, timetable and routes can be seen below. It will be possible for students to pay cash on the bus each day, but it is cheaper to buy either weekly or termly passes for regular travellers.

Archway is a private company and they have full responsibility in running the bus routes and in administration of passes etc. This is reflected in the fare structure. All enquiries and purchases of passes should be directed to Archway travel. It is very important that to remain viable that enough students use the two services they are providing so that they remain cost effective for Archway travel.

Pricing structure:

£2 Single
£3 Return
£12 Weekly Pass
£150 Termly Pass

Free School Meals

We have been asked to use a new online system for registering free school meals for children. It is vital that we ensure all students are registered on this system. This will then check who has been eligible for a free school meal in the last six years, or are eligible this year. This is important as it ensures the correct students get the support they need. It also makes sure we get the correct funding as a school as this information is used to calculate our annual budget. A very simple 30 second online form, which needs your name and national insurance number is all that is needed for us to run the correct checks. This data is not held on file and is simply used to update our free school meal registers. You can find the link at: https://www.cloudforedu.org.uk/ofsm/sims .
