Since the buses run ‘come what may’, we are unable to give refunds for days missed for any reason. As with all extras, a term’s notice in writing to the Headmistress by the first day of term is required for withdrawal from the service at the end of that term.
Girls waiting for the mini-buses have tea provided at no extra charge and go to their organised activity or supervised study in the library. On Friday only, the mini-buses leave at 4.30pm.
All times are closely monitored to see that they are met. Pick-up and drop-off points are reviewed regularly.
