Transport to School

Two privately operated minibuses cater for students living further from Norden than reasonable walking distance.  Although we have strong links with the bus and private hire companies, the school does not run the services.  Parents are reminded, therefore, that high standards of behaviour are expected whilst students are travelling to and from school. 
Please note that the companies reserve the right to refuse to carry any student displaying anti-social behaviour.
