Bus Service

We are extremely proud of our door-to-door bus service which is available from Foundation Stage 1 upwards. More than 200 of our students currently use our school bus service every day, on routes from as far as The Springs to as close as Wafi. 

Safety is our Top Priority

All our vehicles are maintained in accordance with manufacturer recommendations and requirements. Buses are not only kept clean on the outside, but are in excellent shape under the hood as well. In addition to that, we have initiated steps to provide maximum safety to students who are traveling in our buses by installing various safety related systems.

These include:

  • Passenger seats fitted with individual 3-point seat belts
  • Voice Reminder System to alert staff that the child has vacated the bus
  • Bell System
  • GPS Tracking System of the routes
  • Tablet based attendance System
  • CCTV Cameras and DVR
  • No child left behind /Patrol System
  • Digital Display while students on board

We have a dedicated Bus Coordinator; Ms Wilding, who ensures that all RTA regulations for school buses are adhered to. Our Bus Coordinator will be more than happy to address any questions or concerns that you may have.  Please email [email protected]
