Proposed School Bus - Horley Route

28th September 2017

Dear Parents/Carers

You may be aware that towards the end of last year we trialed a bus service, the timings/route of the bus are on the reverse of this letter. 

We are now in a position to offer this service with a start date of Monday 16th October. Crawley Luxury will be the provider of the service and the bus is exclusively for secondary pupils of The Gatwick School, with the daily cost being fully funded by parents.

The cost of the bus is dependent on the number of pupils that sign up for it, as below:

53 pupils = £18.00 per pupil per week

45 pupils = £21.00 per pupil per week

40 pupils = £23.50 per pupil per week

35 pupils = £26.85 per pupil per week

At the moment we are asking for anyone that would like to book a place for their child on the bus, to please email info@thegatwickschool.org.uk by Friday 6th October.  This gives us the following week to confirm the cost to you (dependent on uptake), get payments set up on Parentpay and issue the pupils with their passes.

Once the payments are set up on Parentpay you will need to make payment for 4 weeks to ensure that the cost remains the same throughout that period. Payments will be made one week before travel, but in order for the service to run week beginning Monday 16th October, the first payment will need to be made by Wednesday 11th October on this occasion.  Payment will provide a bus pass for 4 weeks and will be non-refundable.

Yours sincerely

Mark Roessler
