Pupil Travel Arrangements

Transport to and from the airport is included in the fees for all overseas pupils and we ask that parents please book flights which coincide with term dates which can be found here:

Term Dates

All travel requests need to be submitted no later than two weeks before the departure date in order that our Transport Officer can plan the journeys to best fit the needs of all children concerned. A member of staff will usually accompany the children who will travel in School minibuses or with a taxi company who is known to us.

A current pupil  on a Student Visa they will also need to complete the Student Visa Form – available from their Housemaster/Housemistress.

On the day of travel:

If a pupil experiences any difficulties they should make contact with their Housemaster/Housemistress by telephone or email. The Housemaster/Housemistress will endeavour to assist, but appointed guardians may need to be involved where there are significant delays or problems which cannot be easily resolved. If it is during the working day (08.00 – 18.00) School reception can also be contacted.

New pupils will be sent the contact details for their Housemaster/Housemistress and the School Chaperone. When booking your travel you will be asked for your child’s mobile phone number so that our team can also contact them if there are any problems. The Travel Team will always follow flight details so they will be aware of any delays and adjust arrangements accordingly.
