It is our suggestion that your child arrives at the coach stop 5 minutes before the above timings.

(NB Bramley children are normally dropped off at the Queens College Arms by parents in the morning and picked up by the bus en route)

In order to secure your child / children a seat, please complete the form in the attachment below and return it to as soon as possible. As you are aware Hampshire County Council no longer funding seats on the coach for new children using the coach from September 2012. Therefore the cost is to be met by the parents and paid directly to Aldermaston Coaches.

Should we continue to offer this service the cost per student will be £850 per annum. The cost of £850 can be split into three equal payments of £283.33 payable by 10th August for the Autumn Term, 10th December for the Spring Term and 10th April for the Summer Term. Should you wish to pay for the whole academic year in full we are offering a 5% discount and the total therefore would be £807.50. Please advise me by THE END OF JUNE should you wish to book a seat / seats.

Once we have received the completed form, we will contact you again to confirm if we have sufficient numbers to continue running the service and that your child has a seat. If applicable an invoice will be sent to you at the appropriate timings. Other normal procedures will apply ie : a travel pass will be issued with your child’s name on it. Seats are released on a first come first serve basis, please advise other parents who may be interested to contact us.
