New College offers 12 private bus routes operated by Poppleton’s Coaches, serving many surrounding areas of the region.

Due to the current situation, we have decided to keep our bus prices for the upcoming academic year to £230. These are heavily subsidised by the college. In light of this, there may be a considerable increase in the following year to accommodate for a 2-year incremental rise to something in the region of £280/£290. Please factor in this cost when making the decision to attend New College for the 2-year duration of our Level 3 courses.

Payment in full is due for year 12 students at the time of Enrolment (26/27 August). For year 13 students, the payment is due on 9 September.

An initial instalment of £115 can be made over the phone in advance if preferred. Students can phone college on 01977 702139, option 4 at the menu to pay by debit/credit card. Lines are open from Mon-Fri 9am to 1pm, as of Monday 6th July. Please leave a message with your name and phone number if the line is busy and we will get back to you.

Please note, In the past students have been able to use a metro pass on Poppleton’s coaches, but as of September 2019 this will no longer be the case.
