School Transport

Students living in Woodford, Ringstead, Hargrave and Thrapston are entitled to Mainstream Education Transport and are issued with free bus passes stating their allocated route from Northamptonshire County Council. The passes are issued to the school and can be collected from Manor School Student Reception (if a replacement is required a charge of £25 is made by NCC). For all queries regarding this transport please contact Northamptonshire County Council.

Please note this only applies to students in Years 7 to 11. At post-16, a fee for the school bus is payable. The 16-19 bursary is available for students who require financial support.
