Public transport

If your child will be using public transport the best place to get information on the buses is from the
First Somerset Bus website, as this is the most up to date information on bus timetables.

All students require a First Bus photocard to purchase a ticket which can be obtained by providing a passport size photo with their name, tutor group and address on the back.

The current prices of tickets are as follows but please note these may change. First Bus will have the up-to-date information;

Weekly Monthly
Years 7-11 £12.10 £44.00
Years 12 and 13 £16.95 £61.60

We issue First Somerset bus tickets as follows:
