Travel to School with Arriva - Surrey

Cycling to School

There are many  students who cycle to school and there are plenty of bike sheds on-site to store them safely during the day. In order to keep students safe, please ensure your child adheres to our school rules:

  • All cyclists must wear a helmet to and from school.
  • If students arrive at the gate without a helmet, the bike will be confiscated for the day and parents called to collect their child at the end of the school day. 
  • All cyclists must dismount at the gate.
  • All cyclists must lock their bike.

Surrey County Council

Surrey County Council (SCC) provides free home to school transport for children in Surrey who meet their eligibility criteria. The most common criteria is if a student lives over three miles from St Peter’s and we are the closest qualifying secondary school or if a student is in receipt of Free School Meals. SCC assess all new Year 7 students and should contact you by the 1st July if you are eligible.

For other children, SCC may be able to offer alternative help, for example concessionary seats. For students aged 16+ they offer discounted bus and rail travel tickets.

Please refer to the latest guidance from SCC at http://www.surreycc.gov.uk/schools-and-learning/schools/school-transport/under-16-transport-to-school
