School Minibus Information and Booking Form

We are pleased to offer a comprehensive bus service for pupils at The Towers.

The cost of the minibus is £3.75 per journey and is invoiced in advance for the number of days in each term. Unfortunately refunds are not available for non-use due to sickness, sports fixtures, school trips etc. except where the bus is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, such as snow. A term’s notice is required if the seat is no longer needed.

All buses are fitted with seat belts and driven by approved drivers who are fully trained and DBS checked.  All vehicles comply with statutory requirements and are regularly inspected to ensure their road-worthiness. The routes are:

Route 1 –  Brighton    Route 2 –   Burgess Hill    Route 3 – Petworth 

Route 4  – Worthing & Rustington

If you would like your child to have a place on a school bus please complete the form below stating which bus you would like your child to travel on and which pick up point would be most suitable.

Where there are spaces on a route there is an option for pupils to use the bus on an occasional basis and the charge for this is £5.50 per journey.  The space must be booked in advance and a bus pass is to be collected from the school office and given to the bus driver at the beginning of the journey. Minibus All vehicles comply with statutory requirements
