The School Day

The school day starts at 9.00am with registration. According to advice in their EHCP’s, most learners are transported to and from school by taxi or minibus, although parents may bring their own children if they wish. Transport is arranged by the Local Authority,  Student Travel Department, based at County Hall in Truro. The passenger assistants and drivers accompany the children to school where they are greeted by school staff. If there are any problems regarding transport arrangements please email Student Travel at
