Applications for bus passes are made to Herefordshire Council, you are able to download a copy of the application  form below. 

Students should carry their passes at all times as they will be required to show them when they board the vehicle. Students must wear seatbelts if they are provided and behave well at all times.

Transport to Kingstone High School from out of our area

If you live out of our catchment area or Kingstone High School is not your nearest school there is no school contract bus provided by the Local Authority, but there is a service bus run by Yeomans.

The Service is the 449 Yeomans Bus from Hereford to Kingstone and return.

The 449 runs every day and on a school day school children are charged £1.50 single fare each way = £3.00 a day ( instead of the standard £1.80 single fare for children under 16 years old.)

  • 449 leaves           Hereford Bus Station at 0820 a.m 
  • Stops at                Broad Street at 0825 a.m
  • Request Stop at top of Belmont Road by Asda Roundabout
  • Request Stop at Walnut Tree Avenue
  • Request Stop at The Oval
  • Stops at                Bus Stop opposite Tesco Store Belmont Road 0832 a.m
  • Stops at                Birch Hill Road, Clehonger 0839 a.m.
  • Arrives at            Kingstone High School 0844 a.m

Many of our students who live in the Ross Road, Holme Lacy Road area etc.  usually catch the bus at Asda, as parents drop them off at Asda on their journey to work or the children walk through Walnut Tree Avenue and catch the bus there or walk up to the The Oval where many students get on the bus. 

If your child takes the 449 public service bus form Hereford please ensure that your child has sufficient funds for Bus Fares, and keeps the money in a safe place.  

Travel by Car

If your child travels by car please note that our school grounds are extremely busy and we request that parents observe road markings and only park in designated areas. Please ensure that the school buses have adequate space to manoeuvre.  Please always give priority to students on foot and school transport buses and taxis and follow the directions of the duty staff wearing fluorescent jackets.
