School Bus Routes
Stafford Grammar School pupils come from far and wide!
Whilst some travel to school by car, bicycle, bus and even the train, many of our students choose to use school transport. We offer a friendly, safe, reliable and efficient transport service which is available to all pupils whether in the Prep School, Senior School or Sixth Form.
Stafford Grammar School operates its own fleet of modern minibuses. We employ our own drivers (many of whom are retired police officers and all are DBS checked and have undergone thorough safer recruitment procedures). Each school 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. Parents are always provided with the driver’s number.
As with everything at Stafford Grammar School, we aim for a personalised approach tailored to the needs of the individual.
The exact routes are changed each summer, to take account of new children joining in September. We currently operate the following transport routes, although these are adapted each academic year depending on where pupils using the school bus service live.
