Bus pass savings scheme

We have been asked by several parents to allow installments for the Stagecoach annual bus ticket, as we used to do for the coach fare. As the ticket is bought directly from Stagecoach, we are not able to take installments. However, we can facilitate a type of savings scheme through WisePay.

We have set up a bus pass savings scheme into which you can make payments between now and August. We suggest around £50 per week or £200 per month to get you almost to the £650 you will need. We will then refund your balance at the end of August, to allow you to buy the ticket directly from StageCoach in the first week of September. Please note, we are not able to pay interest on your savings but neither will we make any charges for the service.

If you would like to take this opportunity to make stage payments, please visit the WisePay page in the parent portal

Driving

For those of you who are drivers, the College has its own on site car park. As there are limited spaces, drivers must purchase a parking permit through our online payment system – Wisepay – or from the Student Journey Cashier by Reception where we accept cash, card or cheque. Once payment has been received, we will remotely activate the parking chip in your student ID card. This takes one working day to activate. ID cards are normally collected at your enrolment appointment in late August or on your first day at College.

Remember to first upload your profile photo on the Applicant Portal so we can print your ID card. On entering the car park, you hold your ID card to the black box on the barrier whilst no action is needed to exit the car park.
