Since 1st September 2016 transport for post 16 education students, those entering year 12 and 13 after 1st September 2016,  are no longer be entitled to Local Authority transport.  Therefore no transport is now available to Year 12 and 13 students from 1st September 2022.

 

 Transport Fees - Academic Year 2022/2023

Transport Fees for academic year 2022/2023 (starting Monday 5th September 2022) are as follows:

 

1st Child - £780.00 per year

2nd child - £680.00 per year

Maelor 6th form - £500.00 per year (discounted rate - no rebate)

Further breakdown of charges will be available through Parentpay in due course.

 

All accounts for academic year 2021/2022 should be brought up to date by Friday 15th July 2022.  Any account in arrears without the approval of the school will mean that transport from September 2022 will not be available and an alternative method of getting your child (ren) to school should be made. Any transport arrears after this date will be passed onto the school’s debt collection (Daniels Silverman) service for recovery action, additional administrative charges will be added by them.

 

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

 

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.

 

If you have any query regarding transport, please contact the school via email transport@maelorschool.org.uk

Safety Information

All coaches are fitted with seat belts which must be worn.   When travelling on buses all passengers should behave in a respectful manner and not engage in any activity that compromises vehicle, driver or other passenger safety at any time.

 

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.

Parentpay and on-going payments for transport.

Parentpay is now in use for school transport and school trips, if you have not yet had your login detail/passwords  then these can be requested by contacting the finance office at the school but see below regards new accounts.

New Parentpay accounts will be created early in September once your child has been legally admitted to the school.

Payments for school transport can be made 24/7 using this facility and users should ensure that a payment is made on a sufficiently regular basis to ensure that their account does not fall into arrears.

Payments should be made on a regular basis, the school recommends monthly, to ensure that your account does not fall in to arrears.

Any arrears accumulated in an academic year should be paid off no later than the final school day in July so that no disruption to school transport occurs from the start of the following academic year.

 

If, however, you have any issues with payment then please do not hesitate to contact the school finance team at  finance@maelorschool.org.uk or the transport manager at transport@maelorschool.org.uk
