The County Council have advised us that the children will need to purchase a Kent Young Person’s Travel Card. This will enable them to use the existing public bus services. For further information on the Kent Freedom Pass please visit the kent.gov.uk website.
Traveline (www.traveline.info ) is a dedicated local transport website. You will be able to input your location and your destination. All route options are displayed.
The drop off point for most of the services is either Riverhead Tesco or Knole Academy West. Go Coach provide a ‘link’ service between Knole Academy and Riverhead Tesco.

We understand that it will be necessary for some children to come to school by car. We would encourage parents to consider car sharing and if you are interested in this please contact the school office.
Parents are welcome to use our car park to drop off and collect their child. You must be aware that buses also use the entrance. We ask that children use the pavement and do not cross the bus bay for safety reasons.
Trinity School Travel Plan 2017/18
Trinity have produced a School Travel Plan (STP), a document written and adopted by the school outlining the action it will take to encourage healthier, safer and sustainable travel to and from school for both students and staff. It includes a package of measures based on specific aims and objectives that are reviewed annually by an interested group within the school. There are targets, deadlines and people responsible for monitoring progress.
More information about School Travel Plans can be found on the Jambusters website.
