Transport

We recognise that parents lead busy lives and that the school run can be a tricky thing to navigate.

Despite our rural location, we’re more accessible than you might think!

With our own fleet, we offer a number of bus services to Worksop College and Ranby House, morning and afternoon, Monday to Friday, with new routes being added all the time.

Families have the option to choose either a Full service aimed at Day pupils or Flexi service aimed at flex boarders.and can book the morning (drop-off at school), afternoon (drop-off at home) or both.

Please note: from September 2021 our buses no longer run on a Wednesday afternoon.

Areas we cover 

We have four different 'zones' covering three different counties and we currently operate 8 dedicated routes. Service fees are charged according to which zone a pupil boards the bus and which option is chosen. Route stops and zone designation is shown on the map linked below.

Bus Timetables 

All finalised bus timetables are published prior to the start of term and will be available on this webpage soon.

Typically, the earliest pickup is 7am from the furthest stop on any route.
