Travelling to College (Sept 2020)
Though many of our students live in the Scarborough area, many also choose to travel from Filey, Pickering, Malton, Bridlington, Driffield, Whitby and further afield. We do not want travel to be a barrier to you taking advantage of the many opportunities the College has to offer.
If you live in Bridlington, Whitby or the Helmsley and Pickering area, you will need to apply to the College for a travel pass by completing the application below:
- Transport to college application - Bridlington, Whitby, Helmsley & Pickering area
- Transport to college application - Driffield
If not, you need to apply to NYCC by going to https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/school-and-college-transport
Free Travel - Sept 2020
If you live 2.5 miles or more from College and are from a household where the income is less than £25,000 per annum, you may be entitled to financial support towards the cost of travel to College. You may also be eligible for subsidised transport if you are in care or are a care leaver, if you have a disability or if you help care for parents or siblings with a disability.
To get financial help with your transport you will need to make an application to the College’s Student Support Fund; if you are eligible then you may also receive assistance with meals, trips and other college expenses. The application form for financial support is available to download from the website from June.
Subsidised transport: “Pay no more than £12 a week”
Irrespective of household income, the College will subsidise bus transport costs, so that no student who lives more than 3 miles from College has to pay more than £12 per week. [Based on lowest cost transport arrangements and subject to a maximum subsidy of £600 per year.]*
Arrangements may vary dependent on your circumstances, but normally you will need to provide receipts for reimbursement on a monthly basis. To apply for the travel subsidy you must complete a Student Support Fund application form available from the website (from June 2020) or from Student Services.
Even if you are awarded free or subsidised transport you must still make a separate application for your bus pass.
Travel to Learn Scholarship
Students who live more than 15 miles away and are expecting to achieve a 7, 8 or 9 in English Language and Maths GCSEs can apply for £440 to support their studies at college. Simply complete the Travel to Learn Scholarship Form to apply.
