ARRIVA NORTH WEST SCHOLARS SAVER TICKET

The Arriva North West Scholars Saver ticket is valid for anyone in full time education aged between 5 and 18 years. The tickets are valid throughout Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and Halton and entitle the holder to travel on all Arriva North West bus services throughout these areas (excluding non-local services or park and ride schemes). You can use your ticket anytime Monday to Friday during term time but not during weekends or holidays.

There are two Scholar Student Tickets available to purchase from the College. This year the charges are £75.00 per term or £215.00 for the Academic Year.

You will need to bring 4 passport photographs with you on Enrolment Day in order to receive your pass.

BICYCLES

The College has a number of cycle sheds around the site for use by students who wish to cycle to College. All bicycles should be secured using a good quality locking system.

CARS

The College is very fortunate to have on-site parking facilities and, although the car park is a pay and display car park, students, staff and visitors to the College are provided with a parking permit which will allow them to park free of charge. Students can apply for a permit by completing a form (available from Reception), showing their driving licence/pass certificate and providing evidence of car insurance (Certificate of Motor Insurance). The permit must then be clearly displayed in your car windscreen and this will allow you to park at the College free of charge for that academic year. Failure to display the permit could result in a parking fine being issued.

MOPEDS/MOTORBIKES

Students are welcome to ride their mopeds/motorbikes to College. You will need to complete a parking form so that we have your details on record, but you’re not required to display a permit. All mopeds/motorbikes should be secured using a good quality locking system. Staff at our Reception are happy to look after helmets and protective clothing whilst students are in lessons.
