Our in-house transport team run a safe and reliable bus service to support busy families and ease the burden of the school run. We have a fleet of seven branded minibuses plus use Traveller’s Choice for our Barrow service.  Our experienced drivers transport day, weekly and flexi boarders to and from our Senior and Junior School campuses. From every day use to ad hoc requests we cater for any situation to ensure that pupils can arrive to and from school safely.

Each route has a dedicated driver, which helps to build a personal relationship with families as day to day needs change and builds up a feeling of security and trust with the pupils. Parents are given the driver’s contact details to easily relay last minute changes via hands free mobiles and to make communication simple.

Pick up points and routes can be changed, within reason, to meet the needs of families and to ensure the safety of the pupils. Please see below the details of the current routes:

  1. Penrith: Carleton Manors, Kemplea roundabout, Penruddock, Glenridding, Troutbeck
  2. Barrow: Dalton, Ulverston, Greenodd, Backbarrow, Newby Bridge and Fellfoot
  3. Kendal: Old Hutton, Burneside, Staveley and Ings
  4. Milnthorpe: Lindale, Bowness and Windermere
