- 8 to 11 years old, attending their nearest suitable school and it is at least 2 miles away
- 11 to 16 years old, attending the nearest suitable school and it is 2 to 6 miles away - as long as there are not 3 or more suitable schools nearer to home
- 11 to 16 years old, attending a school on the basis of faith and it is 2 to 15 miles away - if it's the nearest school due to your religion or belief
