Travel Requests, Holiday & Exeat Arrangements for Pupils at Sedbergh School

School Bus Sedbergh

This is one form required to make the school aware of all Travel, Holiday & Exeat Arrangements.

We can make all arrangements for transfers to airports or railway stations for pupils travelling within our travel windows, at the start and end of terms, for exeat weekends and for half term travel. Any arrangements outside of the published travel windows will need to be made with the pupil’s guardians.

Requests should be made via the parent portal or the following link. A request must be made for each journey 10 days prior to the day of travel.

If travel arrangements do not fit within our travel windows, please see the form for further details.
