College Transport Policy
Sedgefield Community College is an extremely popular school, with students often travelling a considerable distance to attend. Therefore, the school in partnership with Durham County Council ensures that school buses are available for all students who wish to travel by bus. Students who do not qualify for free travel from Durham County Council can apply for a seat via the special Sedgefield Community College travel scheme (see the college’s SCC Transport application pack 2019-20 v1 for details).
Alternatively an application can be made online at http://www.durham.gov.uk/concessionaryseats
If your daughter/son receives free travel from Durham County Council, you do not need to do anything, Durham County Council continues to provide free transport where students are eligible under its policy. Details of who is eligible can be found on the Durham County Council’s school transport section or by telephoning them on 03000 264444 (option 3).
However, if your son/daughter does not qualify for free travel from Durham County Council and you wish to apply for transport under the Sedgefield Community College travel scheme, then please complete the application form below and return it to Sedgefield Community College as soon as possible (please note the deadline for returned forms stipulated in the application pack) in order to be sure of consideration in time for the start of the new term. Late applications are possible but the availability of bus passes cannot be guaranteed for late applications. Any pass issued will be under the terms outlined in the college’s ‘Home to School Transport Scheme application’ pack. Copies of all documents relating to school transport are available by clicking below.
Should you have any questions or require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the school.
