Transport

Our position in the heart of the city is enviable, allowing girls to participate in the local community as well as being well-served by public transport.

Over two thirds of Senior School students arrive at school by bus, train or by walking.

Many Prep School girls walk, scoot or cycle to Radinden Manor Road. We also offer a shuttle bus between the Prep and Senior School sites, normally available to girls from age 8 upwards.

Stops are based on where the majority of pupils live. In some circumstances it may even be possible for girls to be picked up outside their home. Additional stops en route may also be offered. N.B. – a return journey is the equivalent to 2 single journeys.

Suitable stops will be reviewed, depending on the location of most frequent users; however, the number of stops needs to be limited to keep the journey time reasonable. Priority is generally given to pupils living the further distance away or not on an easily accessible public route.

Requests for other routes not currently offered: Please detail any route that you are interested in, and these will be reviewed on a regular basis.
