Tutorial Bus

Shepton provides a late bus on Mondays and Wednesdays, leaving at 5:10 p.m. for students who need transportation home after attending afternoon tutorials. Tutorial bus applications can be obtained from your teacher, counselors, and the front office. Students must submit an application before having permission to ride the tutorial bus. It takes five school days after submitting your application before you are able to ride the tutorial bus.
