The Foundation Schools' Coach Service provides a convenient and environmentally friendly means of travel for pupils of these schools. Some routes are also available for students of Dulwich Prep London. We transport children to and from school daily, on both regular morning and afternoon coaches and also late coaches for pupils taking part in after school activities.
31 regular routes routes (16:00) and 10 Late Routes (17:45) are offered and this website details the route information.
Once a place is offered IT MUST BE HELD FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR (exceptions are made ONLY if your child leaves school or if you move to an area not served by the coaches). Places must be re-applied for each year and applications are accepted from the January preceding the academic year.
The cost per term for the return journey and use of the late coaches is:
- 2020/2021 is £473 (Price will be £494 from September 2021)
- Part places are available on some routes and are pro prated with an additional 20% surcharge. Please enquire for further details
The late coaches run from Mondays to Thursdays but do not run on Fridays.
Amendments to all routes will be made if deemed necessary.
NOTE FOR JUNIOR SCHOOL PARENTS
Pupils from all schools may use the coach from Year 3, but please note that James Allen’s Prep Year 3 girls may only use the coach from the second half of the Winter term (starting first week of November) as this is a stipulation of the school. James Allen’s Prep and Alleyn's juniors are not permitted to use the late coaches.
NOTE FOR DULWICH PREP LONDON PARENTS
Most coaches serving 'all schools' can accommodate Dulwich Prep London boys. However, due to varying morning arrival times some routes can only drop off boys on or slightly after morning registration. Please contact the Transport Office for the particulars of the route you are interested in. Due to parking restrictions, boys are brought over to Dulwich College by minibus to catch their afternoon coaches there, at 4.00pm for after school coaches and 5.30pm for late coaches. Morning drop offs are outside Alleyn's Head pub (1 minute walk from the school) where a walking bus organised by Dulwich Prep London transfers boys to school.
