Transport to School

Stafford Grammar School draws its pupils from far and wide. Whilst some travel to School by car, some others use bus and train. We try to ensure that transport arrangements are co­ordinated so that those who live some distance from us are in no way disadvantaged but can be assured of a swift and safe journey, morning and afternoon.

The School operates a fleet of modern minibuses to convey children to and from School. The School employs its own drivers (the majority of whom are retired police officers). Each bus is driven by the same driver on the same route every morning and afternoon so that the children, and parents, build a rapport with their driver.

The exact routes are changed each summer, to take account of new children in September.
