Transport Review 2019
This may mean a change to operator, route and timings to transport from April 2020. It is highly unlikely that there will be any significant alternations, but we will be notified if this changes.
All school transport is organised by North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) Passenger Transport Team, and further information can be found on the NYCC website.
Is my child eligible for free school transport?
NYCC provide free school transport to Upper Wharfedale School if it is the catchment school or nearest school to your home and is over 3 miles walking distance away or where the route to the school is not safe to walk. NYCC will automatically assess students eligibility and will send a bus pass to your home address if you are eligible.
Further information about eligibility can be found on the following link: https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/school-transport-reception-year-11-children
If a student is not entitled to free school transport, bus passes are available to purchase and details can be found on the following link: https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/paid-bus-passes
What time are the buses?

Can I drive my child to school?
You are able to drop your child off at school but we politely request that you stay outside of the school grounds as there is no room in the car parks due to school buses and staff arriving. We also request that you are considerate of our neighbours and park respectfully on the residential streets.
