Transport, Bus and Travel Information


As a school we understand that children travelling to school on their own can be a daunting prospect for them and parents alike. To support our parents and students we maintain excellent relations with transport providers allowing us access to an extensive network of transport provision to our school. We work very closely with these providers to ensure safe, convenient and cost effective travel for all.

For Students Entitled To Travel Assistance (Free Transport)

Travel Assistance is the service provided by your own local authority where you are entitled to free transport to our school. For this to be so you must live in catchment but not nearer than three miles from the school or not have suitable walking routes to the school. If you live out of catchment and no place is available at your catchment school this may entitle you to transport assistance also. Transport is provided either by the awarding of a bus pass or by arranged taxi. In some circumstances the LA may pay petrol costs to parents.

 If you believe you may be entitled to assisted transport to The Burgate please contact the appropriate transport department detailed below. They will advise you how to apply.

Here you can purchase a scholars pass for a half term or term. You will need a jpeg image of your child for the pass. Please note scholars pass holders are entitled to use all Salisbury Red services, the X3 service between Salisbury and Ringwood (not 0730 service) and Park and Ride services 24/7.

Conduct On Buses

There is a clear expectation students will use transport services sensibly and respectfully. Students appreciate the calm and comfortable environment on the vehicles. Students are expected to conform with the Burgate Transport Behaviour Code. If students do not treat each other and the services with respect they can expect to be dealt with in accordance with this code and school behaviour policy.
