School Transport

School bus passes can only be issued by the School Transport department at County Hall, by calling. 0116 305 7055. The school is not allowed to allocate students to buses.

Out-of-catchment students are advised to contact School Transport to assess their eligibility in the first instance. 

School Transport 2017/18

Following the decision of the Local Authority to remove the 'frozen transport status' for Ashby School, a commercial bus service option has been arranged with Roberts Coaches to offer paid-for transport for those students affected by this decision from the 2017/18 academic year.

Seats for these bus services can be arranged and paid for directly with Roberts Coaches.  Please click here for further details. 

A full range of payment options are available and full details of these, and costs for 2017/18 academic year, can be found here.
