School transport

We want school life to be as easy and flexible as possible for our parents and we run a fleet of six liveried minibuses driven by our own drivers who are mostly retired policemen.

Our bus map demonstrates the existing routes covered by our vehicles at various points over the 5 day week. It does not necessarily indicate coverage throughout the whole week and therefore you should discuss individual requirements with our Transport Manager.

Availability and coverage are dictated by demand and practicality. Pick-up and drop-off points are chosen to enable a fair and practical service for as many passengers as possible and remote destinations may only be available at those time when practicality allows.

This is a single journey booking for a journey that has not been assigned to you. If there is space we will always try to accommodate you. This needs to be booked with 24hrs notice. This is offered on a first come first served basis and is intended for occasional use only. To secure a place on a single or return journey, a half-termly booking should be made.

A discount will be offered for the half-termly cost of siblings using the bus service.

If two siblings travel the second child travels at half price. If three siblings travel, the third child travels for free.
