Transport to School
South Wonston School is at the heart of the village on the main road. Traffic, at drop off and pick up times is often very congested due to the number of cars, taxis and school buses. We would strongly encourage you and your child to walk to and from school, however we appreciate that this is not always possible. Pedestrian access from Worthy Down, Sutton Scotney and other local villages is not always safe or practical and consequently Hampshire County Council provide a school bus at the beginning and end of the day with numerous pick up and drop off points. The bus is only available to pupils registered at South Wonston School with each child requiring a bus pass in order to travel.
There are two bus routes to and from South Wonston Primary School
- Worthy Down to South Wonston School
- Sutton Scotney and surrounding villages to South Wonston School
Before any child can travel on one of the buses you must have applied for and be in receipt of a bus pass issued by Hampshire Transport. Adults are not permitted to travel with their child on the bus. Travel passes have to be applied for online at:
All Children who travel on the school buses are expected to comply with the Code of Conduct for their own safety and the safety of the other passengers. (See below for Code of Conduct Leaflet)

Home to School Transport Policy
Explains what help is available for home to school transport and the criteria which needs to be met.
Financial Help with Transport to School
The Passenger Transport Group is responsible for providing transport assistance to school for entitled pupils. The Operations Team assesses entitlement and arranges the appropriate transport.
School Car Park
The school car park is for staff only. Due to the restricted nature of the car park there is no on-site parking for parents at any time. Please do not use the top of the school drive as a turning circle as this puts children and pedestrians at risk. The local Community Policy regularly monitor Downs Road at peak times and issue fixed penalty notices for traffic violations. Please park responsibly and with consideration to our neighbours.
If you need to use the disabled parking bay in the school car park please telephone the school office prior to your arrival so that we can arrange access for you.
