About: There are 2 buses which operate for pupils living in Northumberland, the 550 and the 551. These are provided for students who are in Year 9 and above, are Catholic, and have a bus pass supplied by Northumberland Council. This is because the Local Authority will provide transport for students attending a school out of the catchment area when the parent has expressed a preference for their child to be educated at a school with a particular ethos, because they adhere to a particular faith. In Northumberland, transport will only be provided to the nearest faith school to home, provided that it is the faith to which the parent adheres and that such religious education is not available within the catchment school. For Catholic children in Northumberland, St Thomas More School only becomes the nearest faith school at Year 9, due to the Catholic Middle School in Hexham which students could attend up to Year 8. Both services are managed by Northumberland Council. Various bus operators bid for the contracts. The bus operators may therefore change between years or terms. Please note that if your child lives in Northumberland and does not adhere to the Catholic faith, there is no transport provision from Northumberland Local Authority, and students will therefore need to make their own arrangements or use public transport. If you have any queries regarding school transport from Northumberland please contact the Northumberland School Transport Team on 0345 600 6400 or email transport@northumberland.gov.uk.
Tickets and Passes: Students using the 550, or 551, need a bus pass from Northumberland Council. In order to apply for this pass parents should call 01670 624 839. They will have to complete an application form, or an online application, and submit a photograph and copy of their Baptism Certificate.
Lost Property: If a pupil leaves anything on the bus, parents should contact the operator directly. Alternatively the Local Authority can be contacted on 0345 600 6400.
