Travel

Walthamstow Hall is within easy walking distance of Sevenoaks train station.  Together with a mini bus to and from Sevenoaks station, the school also runs mini bus routes from; Tonbridge & Penshurst, Kings Hill & West Malling, Oxted & Westerham and Horton Kirby.  The mini buses are well-used and are all equipped with seat belts and provided with mobile phones in case of problems.  All buses carry the Walthamstow Hall logo, with the exception of the Kings Hill service, which is provided by Starline.

As so many pupils are involved in after school activities, all buses leave at 17:30 Monday – Thursday.  The Sevenoaks station bus also leaves at 16:15 and 17:30 Monday – Thursday.  All buses leave at 16:15 on Fridays.  Tea is provided Monday – Thursday at no extra charge for pupils using the 17:30 buses, and pupils go to supervised study or attend other after school activities.

Since the buses run ‘come what may’, we are unable to give refunds for days missed for any reason.  Half 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.

Mini Bus Charges

Pupils 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 16:15.

All times are closely monitored to see that they are met.  Pick-up and drop-off points are reviewed regularly.
