All BUS2 buses offer these facilities:
- Free Wi-Fi on the bus

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
The school must always refer you to SCC if you have any queries about free home to school transport. Their number is 0300 200 1004.
