First Bus Group Student Travel Scheme

The school has joined the First Bus Group ‘Student Travel Scheme’. The scheme enables students to take advantage of discounted student travel. We have been advised by First that the tickets are now available to purchase via their Student Travel Club (STC) website. A dedicated web page www.firstgroup.com/STC has been set up which will provide details of how a parent can register to the Great Baddow High School STC. The webpage also provides information on how to download the First Bus App and create an mTicket account.

You will need your child’s school email address: @gbhs.co.uk for the verification process. Once purchased, the tickets will be delivered directly to your child’s mobile phone.
