For travel for the remainder of the 2023/24 academic year please call us on 01202 338420 or email  enquiries@damory.co.uk.

Applications for September 2024 will open in May - please check back here at that time.

If you require a surplus seat for travel to any other school in the Dorset Council area, please see the Dorset Council website for details of how to apply.

Please note:

  • You should only apply for a surplus seat if your child is a non-entitled student. If you believe that your child is actually an entitled student you will need to apply to Dorset Council. Details of qualifying criteria and an online application form can be found here. 
  • Unfortunately there is no guarantee of transport for non-entitled students and submitting a surplus seat application does not guarantee that a pass will be available to purchase. Our obligation is to provide transport for all statutorily entitled students, and only once this has been ensured can we consider surplus seat applicants. We will try our best to offer passes to as many applicants as we possibly can, and we are usually able to accommodate the very large majority of those applying.
