Our minibus service is coordinated by our Transport Manager who plans the routes and notifies parents of the exact details as we progress towards the beginning of term.

Fees for using the bus are assessed every year, but as a guide:

  • To use the morning route only: £195 per term (added to your account in advance)
  • To use the afternoon route only: £195 per term (added to your account in advance)
  • A discounted rate is applied to use both morning and afternoon routes: £365 per term (added to your account in advance)
  • However, afternoon routes can be charged on a ‘per usage’ basis and will be added to your account in arrears at a cost of £5 per trip.

In your offer pack, you will find everything you need to register your interest in the transport service. Current parents will be able to find the forms via the Parent Portal.
