**Bus fees will be charged equally across all stops, as this is the way the school is charged for the service by the bus company.

The above fees are already very heavily subsidised by the school and will apply to all registered bus passengers, irrespective of the number of times per week the service is used.

These fees will be charged on your term invoice.
