School Transport

At North Bridge House, we provide a local area coach service to actively reduce the number of cars used by parents on their home-to-school journeys, as well as our own inter-site shuttle bus to solve the dilemma of multiple school drop-offs.

Our Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior Hampstead sites all benefit from being on our free inter-site shuttle bus route, while our Pre-Prep and Prep school pupils further benefit from our home-to-school coach service, which covers six routes around north London.

Our home-to-school coaches each have their own route and timetable, serving as many of our pupils as possible, and are widely used by North Bridge House Pre-Prep and Prep School families.

Shuttle service routes:

Our inter-site shuttle bus service is free and simplifies the logistics around school drop-off and pick-up.

Shuttle Booking

Booking is now open for the shuttle bus service.

A new online form must be completed if a student wishes to continue using the service in the following Autumn term / new academic year. If a new form is not submitted, it will be assumed that the service is no longer required and your child will not be allocated a place on the coach.

Should you have any queries, please contact our School Transport Coordinator via transport@northbridgehouse.com.

Home-to-School Transport

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 possible. Coaches run from locations around North London to North Bridge House Prep School, from which a shuttle bus also runs to the Pre-Prep. Home-to-school coaches are available for children aged 4 and above at our Prep and Pre-Prep Schools.

The cost of using the coach service is £305* per term for either the morning or afternoon and £550* per term 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 2022-23 academic year only and may be reviewed thereafter.

Should you have any queries, please contact our School Transport Coordinator via transport@northbridgehouse.com.

Late coach

Our late coach is available Monday to Thursday to our Prep School students, to provide transport for pupils taking part in extra-curricular activities. We realise that extra-curricular activities often mean that 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.
