Home to School Transport
St Francis Xavier School currently operates four dedicated bus services. Passes are issued for either zone A or zone B and are not transferrable to other routes.
*The daily rate for a pass for the 2023/24 academic year is:
- Zone A - £4.25 per day
- Zone B - £5.50 per day
* SFX reserves the right to update pricing should a provider withdraw their service
To secure a place on one of our bus services we require:
- A completed application form AND
- A deposit of £50 per child, payable via your child's ParentPay account.
The deadline for receipt of applications and deposit payments is 9.00am on Friday 30th June 2023. Late submission may result in your child not being allocated a seat on their chosen route. Places are limited; once all seats have been allocated a waiting list will be in place.
By submitting your application you agree to the Terms and Conditions.
The current SFX Bus timetables can be accessed via the link below.

You will be offered the closest alternative to your requested pickup point. If this is not suitable your child's name will be added to a waiting list for their chosen route.
When will my child receive their bus pass?
Providing all of the requested documentation has been submitted on time, you can expect to receive your child's pass towards the end of the Summer Term.
I would like to pay for my child(ren)'s pass in one full payment. Can I do this?
Yes, you may pay in one single payment. Once your child's place on their chosen route has been confirmed, the remaining balance will be assigned to their ParentPay account.
