I write to confirm arrangements for the provision of transport for sixth form students for the academic year September 2014 to July 2015.
Students who live outside of Hornsea but in our catchment and who had indicated their intention to attend our sixth form as future students by 26th March 2014 (i.e. as a part of the admissions process) will be entitled to apply for re-imbursement of £540.00
The school will initially reimburse £360.00 upon receipt of the completed Application for Reimbursement Form with appropriate “proof of purchase” for an annual bus pass for one of the current home/school transport providers. If parents/carers choose to make payments by Direct Debit reimbursements will be made accordingly, details of this are found on the application for reimbursement form which can be found on HSLC website on the Sixth form page. Please note applications must be returned to the school by 15th September 2014.
Students eligible to a bursary payment (please see our website for eligibility criteria and application details) may choose to use this method to meet the remaining £180.00 of cost.
Students who are not eligible for a bursary payment will be reimbursed at a rate of £60.00 per term, payable at the end of each of the three terms making up an academic year. This will only be payable under the following conditions.
1. The student travels to and from school by bus (not car) as their main means of transportation
2. The student is complying with their learning agreement.
3. The students’ attendance is no lower than 95%.
In an attempt to be helpful I have included details of how to apply online for your school bus pass.
Please go to the ERYC website, www.eastriding.gov.uk/do/learning, apply for paid home to school transport season ticket. Alternatively please contact school transport directly on 01482 395444 option 3.
We will continue to review the success of this initiative over the course of the year. It is our hope that we can maintain this offer into 2015/16 and beyond but do not guarantee to do so.
Mr S Lawrence
