Heathfield’s minibus fleet is modern and comfortable; the buses are operated and maintained under current legislation and all our drivers must have DBS clearance and a clean driving licence with D1 category as mandatory.
Minibus drivers must complete a theory and driving assessment with MIDAS prior to joining our team of drivers.
We look carefully at the annual routes each Summer and the viability of each route is dependent on the number of pupils that use the service, although and we are always happy to discuss alternative or additional routes and pick up points with parents who would like their daughter to travel to school by bus.
Daily Mini Bus Service: Heathfield currently operates three daily local transport routes:
Weekly London Mini Bus Service: Heathfield also operates a convenient weekly transport service to and from Central London for Boarders going home for the weekend.
Girls leave school at 4:15pm on Friday evening. They are dropped off in South Kensington. The return journey, on Sunday evening, leaves South Kensington at 6:45pm and arrives at school by 8:00pm.
