For Boarders: at the start and end of each term the College provides transport to and from all London airports including Heathrow, plus Manchester and Birmingham airports. Transport times are approximately 3 hours, 2 hours and 1.5 hours respectively. We have been working with the same transport company and drivers for over a decade. There is, therefore, never any concern for parents about the travel arrangements for their children. We are well versed in meeting and dropping off unaccompanied minors and all our drivers are fully DBS checked. The cost of this service is shared amongst the students travelling together. Please liaise with the Transport Manager for the best timed flights and further details. We can also arrange transport and collection to and from nearby railway stations.
