Our parents and children really value our minibus service, which is included in the school fees, and covers Winchester and the surrounding areas. We are at present reviewing our routes and are considering adding the Kempshott and Hatch Warren areas.
Named after birds of prey, all our minibuses are driven by a team of friendly, responsible, MiDAS-accredited employees of the school who know every child on their regular routes, and are key members of the Prince's Mead community.
Our full-time Transport and After School Clubs Manager organises the minibuses on each of their three daily runs: morning, after school (4.10pm) and after clubs (5.10pm), linking into sports matches to ensure a seamless service.
Club and bus registers are produced daily to ensure children are accounted for at the beginning and end of the school day.
We understand that flexibility is important for our parents, which is why children are not restricted to one bus on one route, we also do our best to accommodate daily changes.
Our minibus service is an environmentally friendly option which allows parents to avoid peak traffic times at the school gates and extend their working day.
Children's safety is of paramount importance, with safety checks undertaken each day and formal testing carried out at least once each term. Buses are fitted with height-adjustable seat belts that make booster seats redundant.
