At North Bridge House, we provide various Home-to-School Coach services to actively reduce the number of cars used by parents on their home to school journeys, as well as our own Inter-Site Shuttle to ease parents’ dilemma of multiple school drop-offs.
We have five Home-to-School coaches, each with their own route and timetable, in order to serve as many of our pupils are possible. Our coach service is widely used across the North Bridge House group, as is our Inter-Site Shuttle service, which was extended in 2012 to meet the requirements of an increasing number of families with children at more than one North Bridge House site.
At North Bridge House Prep School, we also offer a Late Coach which runs Monday-Thursday during the weeks that after school clubs are in operation.
We are proud to offer a free Inter-Site Shuttle service, to help ease collection of children from multiple North Bridge House sites.
Shuttle service routes:
|Shuttle 1||Nursery/Pre-Prep – Prep (returning in the afternoon)|
|Shuttle 2 Morning||Prep – Senior – Nursery/Pre-Prep – Prep (our very own Circle line!)|
|Shuttle 3||Prep – Nursery/Pre-Prep (returning in the afternoon)|
The North Bridge House coach service has been specifically tailored to meet the demands of our catchment area. We analyse postcode data to produce routes that serve as many of the student body as is possible. Coaches run from locations around North London to North Bridge House Prep, from which a Shuttle runs to the Nursery/Pre-Prep. Home-to-school coaches are only available for Prep, Pre-Prep and Nursery students (age 4 and above).
The cost of using the coach service is £250* for either the morning or afternoon and £440* for a return service. The morning times given are departure times and the afternoon times given are arrival times. Parents must ensure that they arrive in good time to meet the coach as it will be unable to wait.
* These prices apply to the 2017-2018 academic year only and may be reviewed thereafter.

We realise that extra-curricular activities often mean that our pupils are unable to make the most of our School Coaches. Therefore, we offer a Late Coach which is available to all Prep school students who are registered to use an afternoon coach (for free) or shuttle service (£5 per trip fee).
Booking the Late Coach is easy – simply contact the Prep school by 2pm on the day of travel. You are able to book a place for all weeks that after school clubs are in operation, so please let us know if you would like to make a permanent booking. If you decide to cancel the place, please contact the Prep school by 4pm on the day of travel. Bookings for the late coach will open at the beginning of the Autumn Term.
Late Coach service routes:
|Late Coach||NBH Prep Gloucester Avenue – Haverstock Hill – Finchley Road – West Heath – Hampstead Garden Suburb – East Finchley|
