Transport and Travel

Buses coming from Feock, Devoran, Carnon Downs and Playing Place continue their journeys to Penair after first dropping adult passengers in Truro. The bus from Trispen goes via Penair School en route to Truro Bus Station.

A school contract bus links Tresillian with Penair School. Students using these buses are collected from school at the end of the afternoon session. Students living in Truro can catch a bus which goes into town. These arrangements are always liable to change and parents who have any queries should contact the Area Transport Officer, County Hall, telephone 0300 1234 100 or the bus company.

There are regulations entitling students to free school transport. If you are a low income family (i.e. your child is entitled to free school meal or you are in receipt of the maximum level of Working Tax Credit) your child may be entitled to free school transport if he/she is attending Secondary School between two and six miles away from home. If you think this may apply to your child, please put your request for transport in writing to the Admissions & Transport (Policy) Team, Services for Children, Young People and Families, County Hall, Truro, TR1 3AY.

If your child is currently in receipt of free school meals no evidence of entitlement is required, otherwise please send a photocopy of evidence of your current entitlement to benefits. Please note that this entitlement is subject to review each year. Students may also cycle or walk. Whilst every reasonable precaution will be taken to safeguard bicycles, there are no funds available to compensate owners should damage occur. Cycle helmets and lights should be used; permission should be sought from the School Office. Finally, parents who drive their children to School are asked to drop them at the car park provided for this purpose, situated at the end of the School furthest from Truro, next to the bus bay. Please do not use the visitors’ car park at the front of the School or the entrance to either car park.
