A spokesman for Stage­coach said: “We’re very sorry that a pupil was in­con­ve­nienced.

“We work very closely with Kent County Coun­cil to put ar­range­ments in place for the start of term.

“This year, like any other, we made spe­cial ar­range­ments for pupils to travel with­out a pass or ticket for the first full week of term. We ap­plied an ex­tended grace pe­riod be­yond the date spec­i­fied by KCC, so that any pupil who had not re­ceived a pass would be able to travel.

“From Tues­day, Septem­ber 15, we ex­pected any pupil with­out a valid pass to pay the ap­pro­pri­ate fare.”
