Transport for Schools

Transport Grant

In order to support schools participating in NTLT or STEM programmes, the Trust has established a modest transport budget for NTLT Partner Schools. Match funding will be awarded for STEM or NTLT related activities on a needs basis, in order to enable wider participation. If your school needs assistance in paying for transport, please complete the form below. Applications will be assessed on a needs basis and you will be informed within 10 working days if your application has been successful.

Terms and Conditions and Eligibility Criteria

The Trust will look to support schools with up to 50% of the total cost up to a maximum contribution of £500 per school per academic year.

Applications will only be considered if:

  • Clear and reasonable effort has been made to use existing minibus facilities or public transport
  • Where available, other forms of grants have been explored
  • Transport to the activity/event will be a barrier to school participation
  • Quoted costs are competitive and reasonable for the distance being travelled
  • Application has been made in good time prior to the planned excursion. Grant applications must be received and approved ahead of trips as grants cannot be awarded retrospectively

Priority areas:

  • STEM activities
  • Trust programmes

We reserve the right to refuse an application without recourse and without giving reason.
