In order to streamline procedures across all EA Offices, with effect from September 2018, existing transport assistance for ALL Year 12 pupils will end at 30 June.  Therefore any pupil wishing to return to Year 13, regardless as to whether they remain in the same school or choose to move to a new school, must make a new application for September. 


All transport applications must be made on-line through the EA website www.eani.org.uk/transportapp


You are encouraged to apply as soon as it has been confirmed that your child / children will be returning to school to ensure passes will be available at the school at the start of term.
