West Gate School does not arrange transport for students; this has to be done by parents and carers directly with either Leicester City or Leicestershire County services, although an application form will be included in the students welcome pack when joining the school. School will support by giving the relevant information to the transport services to ensure your child's journey is well managed and will work with the service to make the bus or taxi links as efficient as possible. The school however has no authority to influence decisions made by the transport authority in respect to individual students eligibility.
The contact links for applications are below.
For all special education (SEN) transport queries please ring 0116 221 1432 for assistance.
