There is a bus service available to pupils at the School offered by Brouwer Tours. The service is available to all Early Years and all Junior pupils, and to Senior pupils for the morning only.
What does the bus service offer?
- Reliable and affordable transportation for your child to and from school.
- A professional service with a company experienced in school transport and working with children of all ages. The service is available for Early Years and Junior School pupils.
- Flexible routes – you can contact Brouwer to make bus stop requests and they will try to accommodate if possible.
- A sustainable travel solution and reduced traffic increases safety around the school building.
*From next term the bus service will no longer be offered to Senior pupils in the afternoon due to logistical challenges. If you have a child in/joining the Senior School, please take a look at our travel guide which has suggestions and tips for the best ways to travel to school.
Here’s what some of our parents had to say about the bus service:
“Our daughter loves the bus. It’s a nice way to get to know children in other classes, the drivers are professional and friendly, and the bus service is reliable and convenient.” Year 4 Parent
“Everything worked perfectly; with the bus service we have now found the best solution to send our son to school. And even better, he is always looking forward to the bus ride.” Year 1 Parent
“We are super happy with the bus service in the mornings, it’s such a relief.” Year 2 Parent
“What we like most about the bus service is that they have added a bus stop near our home and it is always on time in the morning and afternoon.” Year 3 and Year 6 Parent
Based on the findings of our recent bus survey to parents, two bus routes with different pick-up points will be offered. This is subject to change based on increasing demands from parents.
You can view both bus routes on our interactive map below. The timings and bus stop locations are also provided in the tables underneath. Please note that the times are a guide and may change slightly.
