Parents/guardians of students who require school transport must complete and return a School Transport form only available at (School Transport). This can be completed online. Please note our School Roll No: 64620Q. The school is not responsible for organising school buses.

Some useful information

The Department of Education and Skills provides subsidised school transport for post-primary pupils who live more than 4.8 kilometres away from the appropriate school.

Bus Éireann runs the school bus service and the Department of Education and Skills decides the annual fares. The Department and Bus Éireann determine what is the relevant school, having regard to ethos, language and the shortest traversable route from the child’s home.

The service is only provided where there are at least 10 eligible pupils in a distinct locality that can be economically serviced by a bus route. Even when a pupil meets the age and distance criteria for school transport, there is no legal entitlement to transport.

To be eligible for school transport, a student must:

  • Be enrolled in a recognised post-primary school
  • Live 4.8 kilometres or more from the nearest school
