Corby Bus route - offer letter

Please see the offer letter that has gone out to parents that expressed an interest in the Corby bus 

24th June 2020 

Dear Parents & Carers 

UCC4 – New Corby Service 2020/21 

I hope this email finds you and your families safe and well. 

Following the disappointing news from Lawsons that they will no longer be offering two services from next academic year, I wrote to you a few weeks ago with a proposal to gauge interest and I am now writing to you with further news. 

I forwarded details of a proposed new route, which was very similar to current ones but combined both of these services. This proposed service would be provided by Lawsons but managed by UCC. We already manage three services which are non-profit making and run by the College as an additional service to our parents. The level of interest has not been as first hoped but after careful consideration, we are pleased to offer this service to you and our students for the academic year 2020/21. This service will be the UCC4. 

The cost of the permit for 2020/21 will be:  £925.00   (Discounted to £878.75 if paid in full by 30/9/20) 

To secure your child/ren’s place, a non-refundable deposit of £235.00 is now required. We fully recognise that this is a sizable deposit but it has been calculated to reduce the monthly instalment amount payable from September 2020 to February 2021. To help spread the cost, payment of the deposit may be made in full by 10th July 2020 or in two instalments of £117.50 by 10th July and 1st August 2020. 

Please complete the online form to confirm your acceptance of the UCC terms & conditions and make payment of your deposit via Wisepay, no later than 10th July 2020. If payment is not received by this date, unfortunately, we will not be able to guarantee your child’s place. 

The remaining balance can be paid in full by 30th September 2020 (£878.75) which qualifies for a 5% discount, or in six equal monthly instalments of £115.00 commencing in September 2020 to February 2021.  Payments are due on the first working day of each month. If payments are not kept up to date, the bus permit may be withdrawn. 

An invoice for the full amount will be sent before the start of the academic year, along with the travel permit. The College’s preferred method of payment is via Wisepay which will also give you a record of what you have paid to date. 

Terms & Conditions and a timetable are included with this email. 

As with all UCC bus services, this is only assured for 2020/21 and any future operation will be determined on financial viability. 

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Finance Department either via email or call 01572 823631. 

Yours sincerely 
Mrs K Croote 
School Business Director

  • The Governors of UCC reserve the right to withdraw the bus service at any time. 

  • The bus permit is only issued for one year. Future operation of this service is not guaranteed.
