Information for Year 11 students
If you require transport to get to college of sixth form from September, you should apply to Norfolk County Council’s post-16 travel scheme as soon as possible.
It is not necessary for you to wait for your GCSE results in August before you apply. It is far better you apply now rather than leave it until results day. If you change your mind on the establishment that you wish to go to this is not a problem as Norfolk County Council can reassess your application.
If you decide to cancel the application it is not a problem and any money paid will be refunded.
In addition to our scheme, all local bus and train operators offer discounted tickets for students which are really good value too.
For details of our scheme please access the following website: Post-16 Travel Scheme.

The academy encourages all eligible students to use the school bus provision. The academy Pastoral Team will carry out “spot checks” on this service and students who fail to uphold the academy’s high standards of behaviour and conduct may be banned from the school bus provision for a fixed term period, and if appropriate, permanently.
