Oxfordshire County Council may provide free transport (or meet the cost of travel) for your child if he or she meets the criteria described in the Council’s Home to School Transport Policy.  This is typically where a child attends their nearest school and lives over the statutory walking distance (which for secondary aged students is 3 miles).

To find out if your child is eligible and what support is available if they are not, click Free and paid travel to school | Oxfordshire County Council or visit

Otherwise parents may be able to pay for spare seats on school buses operating for students who qualify for statutory transport.  Further information is available here.  There are also public buses that serve Gillotts School.
