It is important for all users to check the routes and times for the forthcoming year.

Please ensure that you are available to be picked up at your appropriate time in order for the bus routes to run smoothly.

All school bus passes issued last year are no longer valid and new passes will be issued during the first half term.   However, only those students that have completed applications should be accessing the transport.

All transport whether organised by the school (Pat's Coaches) or through the Local Authority requires students to be in possession of the appropriate pass.  Failure to be able to show a valid pass (once issued) when asked, will result in students not being able to access the relevant bus.

Should students lose bus passes, contact with the issuing authority (school or WCBC) should be made as soon as possible to arrange for a replacement to be issued.   Additional fees for replacements may apply.

Any changes in student school transport should be notified to school transport at The Maelor School either by email or by letter and any pass returned.  Failure to let the school know that changes have occurred could result in the liability to pay remaining and needing to be paid.

The Local Authority School Transport Policy and Information can be found  at the following address:

An important update to post 16 transport from 1st September 2016 has been made.  Transport for post 16 education students, those entering year 12 from 1st September 2016,  will no longer be entitled to Local Authority transport.  Therefore no transport is now available to Year 12 and 13 students from 1st September 2017 unless WCBC are able to assist in concessionary travel but this is at their discretion only and application must be made to them in advance.

Wrexham County Borough Council are the sole authority to issue passes for the transport that they operate, students without the appropriate pass are not entitled to use WCBC operated school bus transport.


Reconciliation of transport accounts is currently underway and following this, parentpay activation letters will be posted out to parents/carers as soon as they are available.  It is anticipated that letters will start to be sent out before October half term at the latest.
