Transport to and From Chosen Hill School

Chosen Hill School does not have any contractual arrangements with any bus company, nor are we obliged to provide a bus service for students. Gloucestershire County Council only has contractual obligations with regards to the CH3 Route, which leaves from the Reddings through Shurdington and is introducing service level agreements to cover GCC entitled students with bus passes on commercial services.

All other services are provided by the bus and coach companies as part of their service to the public or in response to a perceived need. Bus tickets can be purchased from Stagecoach or John Dix directly either by the students/parents or by Gloucestershire County Council if there is shown to be a legal statutory right to free bus passes. Full details about entitlement to free bus passes can be obtained from Gloucestershire County Council (see below), however if you live more than three miles from school (measured by the most direct route including footpaths) and there is no closer school than Chosen Hill School, then you may be entitled to claim a bus pass. Chosen Hill School has direct liaison with the bus companies, but can only act as a co-ordinator and communication channel. Should you need to contact us about your child’s school bus route, please ensure you inform us of the bus route number, so we can assist.  Our influence, whilst not insubstantial, has no power to control or alter the actions of independent commercial enterprises. Timetables may also vary, so please do check with the bus company.
