School Transport

Whenever possible, we encourage children to walk to school or to "Park and stride". Children are welcome to cycle to school but must dismount at the pedestrian entrance and walk their bike up to the bike rack. Please note that pedestrians and cyclists are not to use the vehicular entrance and drive - this is for school vehicles only. 


There is limited parking near the school. Do be mindful and try to park as safely as possible - Please do not park on the zigzag lines or block road entrances.



The children from Thornton-le-Moor and Thornton-le-Beans, aged five or older will be transported to the school free of charge by the County Council.   A taxi is provided for children from Kirby Wiske and Newsham. The fee for four year olds to use the bus or taxi is currently £350.00 for the year (this amount must be paid at the beginning of the academic school year either in one lump sum or nine monthly direct debit instalments). An annual increase is usually made in September.


Children from Maunby may come to school on the school bus, which leaves Maunby at approximately 8.15 a.m.  Again a fee of £350.00 for the year is charged. This bus is primarily for the transport of secondary children into Northallerton.  Primary children may only use this transport if there is room.  Maunby parents must provide their own transport home for their children.  Details of transport arrangements can be obtained from North Yorkshire County Council, Education Transport - Tel: 01609 536100.
