Sixth Form

Students are not entitled to receive free transport to school when they join the Sixth Form. However, to help support Sixth Form students to get here, The Gryphon School contracts transport operating from a variety of locations. In addition, limited numbers of surplus seats are available on routes operated by South West Coaches on behalf of Dorset County Council.

The application process for school bus places, including important deadlines, is as follows:

·         Services/routes run by South West Coaches are detailed on the South West Coaches website – . Applications for seats on these routes from Sixth form students must be made via South West Coaches, Surplus Seat Applications, 11 Oak Way, Lufton Business Park, Yeovil, BA22 8HS. These seats are offered on a limited and strictly first-come first-served basis.

·         New contracts for Gryphon School routes will awarded shortly. The application process for seats on Gryphon School run buses will be opened on 4th June 2018. Sixth Form students will be given a two week period of priority to apply, after which the application process will be open to the whole school.  Any queries about this should be directed to the school bursary:
