School Buses

To use our secure system there is a registration fee of £100 per child per year.  Thereafter the buses are heavily subsidised by the School with a charge of only £3 per day whenever the child uses the bus.  Bus booking for the 2024-25 is not yet open.

The Kelvinside Academy Transport Platform operate in partnership with StudentSafe.  This offers parents a technology-led transport management solution with many benefits including increased safeguarding which is always our number one priority. There is a registration fee of £100 per child per year.

The School subsides the cost of the buses and only charges £3 per day - irrespective of whether a child uses the bus both morning and afternoon - or just one way. There is a maximum daily charge of £6 per family to support families of more than two children. We hope that it will also encourage more parents to take advantage of the bus journeys to and from school to help reduce emissions on the School Run.

 

Registration Fee & Fobs

Once you have registered for the bus service, the £100 registration fee for each child registered will be added to your school fee note.  Thereafter you will be charged each month for your child's usage.

The fobs used by the children to register as they get on the bus each day will be distributed to them during the first week of Autumn term.
