Coach and Minibus Service

In order to help parents and carers transport students to and from school, the College is delighted to provide a safe and reliable coach service with Adlib Coaches.

There are currently two routes in operation: the Streatham and Dulwich Route and the Blackheath Route. Your address may fall within or very near to a pick-up point (P1, P2, P3 etc) but if not, we are always happy to consider additional pick-up points according to demand.

We usually ask parents to register their interest by the end of the Trinity term in order for their child to start using the school coach at the start of the following Michaelmas term.

We look forward to welcoming you on our School Coach service.

FAQS

How much does it cost?

For the academic year 2020-21, the annual cost for the Streatham and Dulwich Route is £1650 (or £550 per term) and is £1680 for the Blackheath Route (or £560 per term). Fees are added to your account on a termly basis and children must sign up for the whole year. Fees are the same whichever pick up point you use.

Must my child use the service everyday?

While most pupils use the service every day, both morning and afternoon, they also have the option to use the service just part of the week. However, parents will be charged the full fee regardless of the frequency of use.

Parents can opt to use the coach service for either the morning or afternoon, but priority will be given to those pupils who use the service fully.  Any applications received for one-way journeys only, will be addressed on a first come first served basis.

Who is the School Coach service for?

The service is currently open to Junior School children in Year 5 and Year 6 and to all Senior School children from Year 7 to Year 13.

If you are interested in a sibling of a Senior School student younger than Year 5 joining the service, please enquire with Miss Teresa Beard at collegeoffice@stdunstans.org.uk

Are the drivers DBS checked?

The College always seeks to act prudently, only asking reputable providers to run the services. The College ensures that all drivers have the appropriate clearance from the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS check).

What is the cancellation policy?

Parents who wish to stop using the School Coach service must give one full term notice by writing to the College Office at collegeoffice@stdunstans.org.uk.

Who should I contact if I have a question?

Any query regarding the School Coach service should be directed to Miss Teresa Beard at collegeoffice@stdunstans.org.uk or on 020 8516 7200.
