Bloxham School Minibus Service

The Bloxham minibus service operates Monday to Friday, with pick up times from 7.00am (varies with between routes), ensuring that students arrive in school by 8.00am. The buses then leave school between 6.00pm and 6.10pm. We offer flexibility wherever possible so parents can choose which mornings and evenings they require, enabling students to do a mixture of day and boarding if they wish.

We have our own fleet of minibuses and a dedicated team of drivers. All the minibuses have regular safety checks and are equipped with hands-free phones, seat belts, fire extinguishers and first aid packs. The experienced drivers are qualified through the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS).
