Latest Updates: 

2nd October 2020 – A reminder from Southern Vectis: 

Students that have been allocated a Southern Vectis NETWORK ticket should be using their dedicated, scholars-only school bus services, wherever possible. These routes either mirror the standard network routes, or in some cases even offer more direct journeys helping you get to school quickly and safely.

To make sure there is enough space on Southern Vectis’ standard network routes for their other customers, it’s important that students who can, use the scholars-only school buses just for them. Further information on these routes can be found here https://www.islandbuses.info/school-travel

If students are attending a breakfast or after-school club, they may use Southern Vectis’ standard network routes on those occasions but only in conjunction with an out-of-hours pass obtained from the school club.
