School Bus Service

The Governors of Holy Family Catholic High School first introduced a bus service In September 2011 with one bus for the students in the Litherland area. Since then more buses have been added, 1 per year group, providing transport to meet the need of the students.

This service is currently subsidised by school budget. The cost for students is £2.50 per return journey. This is a huge financial commitment from the governors to support pupils with safer and easier transport to and from school.

The service is run by “Napier Travel”. We are able to offer places to Year 7 pupils initially to help ease their transition to High School. Any remaining places will be offered to other year groups with priority given to siblings and pupils in receipt of free school meals.
