    Southend BC council offers travel assistance to students who have a home address in the Borough of Southend and

    • are a secondary school student, registered for Free School Meals or live in a Low Income Household and attend a selective school in Southend which is between two and six walking miles from the home address;
    • are a secondary school student, registered for Free School Meals or live in a Low Income Household and attend the nearest Denominational (Faith) school on the grounds of religious belief within two and fifteen walking miles from Home.

    If one or other applies you should apply online going to the Southend Borough Council website, search School and College Travel Assistance and then follow the instructions. If applying on the grounds of attending a faith school the completion of the online form will generate a form that you will need to get the priest to sign.

     

     

    ‘It was only with the support of the senior leadership team and my fellow students that I even considered applying to Oxford, and I genuinely don’t believe I would have achieved as much as I have done if it wasn’t for their help, encouragement and confidence in me.’

    — Isabel Aust, Former Head Student
