College Coaches

We offer four college coach routes to provide transport from some of the areas where public bus services are less convenient.


The annual cost of the college coach is 9 payments of £79. The first payment should be made by bank transfer in August to secure your place. The remaining payments will be due monthly by Direct Debit starting at the beginning of October. We will use the same Direct Debit instruction that you have been asked to complete for your college deposit. We are aware that most students will be engaging with blended learning during Term 1 2020 (due to Covid-19) and so will only be in college every other week, the final payments of the academic year will be adjusted for any shortfall in delivery.

A bursary may be available for students living in a household where earnings are less than £23,000 per year, if you are unsure please contact me for more information.

Route 4

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 coach operator is Turners Coachways.

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

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.
