Minerva Learning Trust

Buses

Students from the Ecclesfield, Chapeltown and High Green areas have access to the 777 school bus service which are provided by Stagecoach and Heatons. Both bus services provided by Stagecoach and Heatons will cover the morning journeys and return journeys from school at 3.07pm and 3.10pm respectively. We will confirm any arrangements for a later service at 4pm in due course.

We would like to continue with separating year groups travelling on the school transport as follows:

Please ensure your child has the appropriate student bus pass from SYPTE prior to their start with us. There are three options, as follows:

• Zero fare pass – this is an application process and is issued to those students that meet the local authority criteria. Some students from High Green may be eligible for a zero fare pass. More details can be found at: - www.travelsouthyorkshire.com

• Megatravel pass - all students should have a Megatravel pass to allow them to travel for 80p rather than paying the adult fare. Even those with a zero fare pass should have a Megatravel pass. Details can be found here: - www.travelsouthyorkshire.com

• Mobility pass – For any student with a disability, they may qualify for a mobility pass that will provide free travel, not just at school times. Details can be found here: -www.travelsouthyorkshire.com

Any students who live out of the Stocksbridge and Deepcar area, who need to use public transport should be familiar with the journey and bus stop points prior to joining us.

At the time of writing, face masks are required on bus services.
