School Buses

Cornwall Council operate a number of dedicated school buses which serve the villages surrounding the school. Eligibility criteria for free home to school transport is set out within Cornwall Council Home to School Transport Policy 2021/22. Find out if your child is eligible for free transport and how to apply: School Transport .

Public Bus

First South West Ltd operates a public bus which serves the 24 route (Fowey-Par-St Blazey). In addition, Go Cornwall operate 22 route (Nanpean-Foxhole-Trewoon) and 30 route (Stenalees-Bugle-Penwithick) which stop within the school site on weekdays, during term time.

Late Buses

For Spring Term 2024, we are trialling the introduction of late buses. These late buses are available to support students in all year groups, whether it is students in Year 11 attending the Exam Success Sessions or younger students attending Penrice Plus activities or Homework Club. Find out more via the link below.

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.

We expect all students to agree to and abide by the Codes of Good Practice.

 
There is a collective responsibility for behaviour on school transport between;

  • parents/carers
  • schools
  • transport operators and
  • Cornwall Council

Cornwall Council reserves the right to temporarily or permanently withdraw transport if ;

  • there are repeated instances of unacceptable behaviour,
  • or a single incident of extreme unacceptable behaviour

This decision will be made together with the child’s school. The final decision rests with the Transport Coordination Service. Please be aware that, during any period of transport withdrawal, it is the parents’ responsibility to make alternative transport arrangements to ensure continued attendance at school.
