Travelling to College
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 2.5 miles or more from College and are from a household where income is less than £18,000 per annum you are eligible to apply to the College for free transport (or for a transport subsidy if your income is below £25,000). 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 or can be collected from Student Services.
Subsidised transport: “Pay no more than £11 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 £11 per week*
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 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
