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 can book the morning (drop-off at school), afternoon (drop-off at home) or both.

Please note: our buses no longer run on a Saturday morning, but DO run on a Wednesday afternoon

COVID-19 and our Transport system

In accordance with  government guidance around ‘dedicated transport’, we will be adopting the following measures on our buses in order to reduce risk:

  • Hand sanitiser will be available for pupils upon boarding and/or disembarking
  • There will be additional cleaning of vehicles
  • There will be an organised queuing and boarding system and distancing within vehicles wherever possible
  • Children over the age of 11 will be asked to use face coverings, where appropriate

Areas we cover 

We have four different 'zones' covering three different counties! Identify your area and scroll down to view the pricing structure.
