Somerset County Council provides free transport for students in Years 7 – 11 to attend their catchment or nearest appropriate school and they live more than 3 miles shortest available walking distance from home to Stanchester Academy. This is run by the School Transport Department which organises the routes and contract buses. It is possible for other students to apply for a spare seat on a contract bus operated by Somerset School Transport. There is an annual charge for spare/unallocated seats.
In addition to transport provided by Somerset School Transport, Stanchester Academy now operate a bus service to and from the Lufton and Houndstone area as this area is not serviced by County Transport.
We use our own school mini bus to provide this service and it is driven by a member of our site team. The bus will collect and drop off by the new Lufton housing development and the layby opposite the Airfield Tavern.
This service will be charged on a termly basis and the cost will be dependent upon how many students sign up.
Should you have any questions or for additional information, please contact the main school office on 01935 823200.
