School Transport

Bishop Barrington School operates its home to school transport arrangements under Durham County Council’s Home to School Transport policy which, from September 2012, states:

Pupils of compulsory school age are entitled to free home to school transport to:

the nearest suitable school, if that school is more than three miles from the parental home using the shortest available walking route. Routes are measured from the centre point of a pupil’s house, or in the case of a flat from the centre point of the building, to the nearest school entrance. The courts have defined an available route as one “along which a child accompanied as necessary can walk and walk with reasonable safety to school”.

Please refer to DCC webpage HERE re further information and how to apply for concessionary seats.
