Costs 

The annual cost of the college coach in 2022-23 is 9 payments of £96. The first payment should be made by bank transfer in the summer to secure a place. The remaining payments will be due monthly by Direct Debit starting at the beginning of October.

Your place will be reserved for the whole academic year. The amount the college pays to the coach company is fixed so we ask students to commit to the place for the year and pay the full 9 instalments. 

A full bursary may be available for students where their household income is less than £27,000 a year and a partial bursary may be available for students living in a household where earnings are between £27,000 and £55,000 per year - see: 16 - 19 Bursary

These services operate at the beginning and end of the college day, arriving at St Brendan's by 08:50am and departing at 16:10.

Our aim is that these routes serve our students in the best way possible - if you have any suggestions for improvements please email: transport@stbrn.ac.uk

The College is open for students on 185 days in an academic year and we provide all coaches everyday, and so the charges are based on this. Places are offered on the understanding that students will use the service for the full year. However, if circumstances should change, i.e. moving house, please contact the Transport Officer in writing. We require one full calendar months notice to cancel the service and payment will be due for the notice period.

"No Pass means No travel"

In order to increase security we are adopting the practice used by many other Colleges, passes must be shown for all travel. Students unable to show a college photo id travel pass will not be allowed to board, as would happen on public transport. There will be no exceptions to the rule "NO PASS MEANS NO TRAVEL."

Allocation of Places on College Transport:

If demand for College Transport is higher than the places available, we will apply agreed admissions criteria to prioritise and the decisions of the College will be final in interpreting and applying these criteria. The right is reserved to refuse, or withdraw, a place for disciplinary or other reasons.
