There are lots of ways to get into College – here are just a few.

Direct Yeovil College Buses YC1, YC2, YC3, YC4, YC5 & YC6

Recognising the travel challenges in South Somerset and understanding that some students find it extremely difficult to reach post-16 education, we are committed to addressing this issue and in doing so providing our students and future students with the education that they deserve.

Our fleet of direct buses to and from Yeovil College are proving extremely popular, and we aren’t stopping there. There are many plans to expand our current network, ensuing students from far and wide can access Somerset’s top performing College.*
