Home to School Transport

The County Council will provide transport to the school within the designated transport area (DTA), or to a nearer school if the distance between the child's home address and the school is more than 4827 metres (3 miles) for secondary school children.

These distances are measured using the shortest available suitable walking route from the gate of the student's property to the nearest gate of the school.

Transport is only provided at each end of the school day. The type of transport can change during the period of entitlement for operational reasons but you will be told about this should it happen.

Please note that if your secondary DTA schools are in Grantham, your child will only qualify for transport if all the Grantham secondary schools are over 3 miles from the home address.

More details on these requirements are available on the Lincolnshire County Council Website:
