Financial Assistance for Travel
Essex County Council considers any application for transport assistance for a person of sixth form age against their Education Transport Policy. Assistance will only be provided where the specific circumstances apply, and the student is attending the nearest appropriate maintained establishment offering the majority of the chosen course(s), and that establishment is more than 3 miles by the shortest walking route from the home address.

Travel issues with cars and motorbikes.
Students who wish to attend the sixth form on motorbikes or scooters will need to have written permission from the Head of Sixth Form to bring their vehicle on site. Permission will be conditional upon satisfying the sixth form that:
- the student has a valid license
- the student can use the equipment responsibly
- the vehicle is roadworthy and properly insured
A part of the planning consent for the sixth form was the assurance that we would not provide parking spaces for sixth form students who wish to drive, as this would lead to increased traffic on local roads. The sixth form therefore is unable to give permission for students to drive in to the sixth form.
