For the current Year 11 and Year 12 starting our Sixth Form in September 2016, students wishing to travel by bus will be able to apply for a 'Kent 16+ Travel Card' directly to KCC Public Transport, either on-line or by post.

You need to apply by 15 July 2016 for your pass to be ready for the first day of term in September. If you apply after 15 July 2016 KCC will process your application within 28 working days.

No payments must be sent with applications this year, but payments will be collected on enrolment days, Thursday 18 August 2016 for Year 13 and Thursday 25 August 2016 for Year 12.  Cheques for the full payment of £400 should be made payable to Highworth Grammar School.  If you have also applied for a Bursary, or would like to ask about payment options, please speak to Mrs Wilson on enrolment day.

If you apply by the deadline (15th July 2016), the travel card will be sent to the school for collection on the first day of term.  KCC has agreed for bus operators to allow all students to travel for free for the first week of term without any proof of purchase.

If you apply after the deadline, please note that applications can take up to 28 working days to be processed.  The travel card will be sent to your school as soon as possible and will be available for collection from Mrs Wilson.

The school does have a 16-19 bursary fund which may provide some financial assistance in meeting the costs of the card. For further information and to apply for a bursary please visit the school website and click on the 16-19 bursary link. Awards of the bursary are not made until the end of September to allow for the application to be reviewed 

Please contact Mr Donovan, Deputy Head of Sixth Form, should you have any queries about the travel card.
