School Bus

Sparsholt C of E Primary School is accessed via a narrow road running through Sparsholt Village.  Due to the rural location, a school bus is available at the beginning and end of the school day to transport children to designated bus stops, free of charge to Yr R* through to Yr 6 children, in Crawley and Littleton. An application must be made through Hampshire Home to School Transport in order to access this service.
 
Home to School Transport

There is no Local Authority funded Home to School Transport, free to the child/family, for children before they are compulsory school age. Children who meet the eligibility criteria may receive transport at the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday.  

However, Hampshire County Council will ensure that there is sufficient transport capacity to enable all parents/carers of YR pupils to purchase a seat for the term(s) preceding and including their child’s fifth birthday, should they choose to do so.  The cost for a seat will depend on the distance from home to school and will be based on the following:

Distance

Annual charge

Termly cost

Up to 5 miles

£600

£200

 
Please  visit Hampshire Home to School Transport where you will be provided with information on eligibility criteria and application portal.
