The Ministry of Education provides free transport to Cambridge Middle School under legal prescribed conditions.
These conditions make students ‘eligible’ to use the transport provided. Eligible Year 7 and Year 8 students must have a residential address that is 3.2km or further from Cambridge Middle School. This changes for our Year 9 and Year 10 students to 4.8km or further.
Cambridge Travel Lines is the company which has the contract to provide the transport for eligible students. Those rural schools catering for students up to Year 8 have contracted services to carry eligible students to the school nearest their home. This makes them ineligible for free transport to Cambridge Middle School unless they have been attending a contributing school.
Please be aware that Cambridge Travel Lines is under no obligation to provide transport for ineligible students.
In choosing to send your son/daughter to Cambridge Middle School as an ineligible student in terms of transport, you are also taking responsibility for their transport to school. At this time, there is a bus service between Cambridge Middle School and Leamington.
If you are unsure of eligibility please make contact with Cambridge Travel Lines 07 827 7363.
