Bloxham School offers airport transfers to London Heathrow on the last day of each term and on the day before the first day of term. The cost of this service is included in the overseas students’ fees.

Transfers to and from other airports can be arranged with taxis – however, these will incur an additional fee.  Alternatively, there are frequent independent airport transfer bus or train services to and from all London airports.

Should your child require airport transfers, please fill in this online form. Please ensure that both outgoing and return flight information, including your child’s contact mobile number for the return journey, is sent to the Transport Manager ([email protected]) and your child’s Housemaster/mistress no later than two weeks before the departure or arrival date.

Departures

Minibuses depart school at the times and dates stated below. This has been put in place to allow parents to book flights in advance and reduce waiting times at the airport.

If your flight is booked outside the times listed below, or from an airport other than London Heathrow, an alternative arrangement such as coach, train or taxi may be required and will need to be booked directly by parents or guardians. Please use these helpful links: National Express coaches & Trainline.

Arrivals

On the day before the first day of term (the day boarders are due to return), the school will arrange to collect students at the five Heathrow Terminals. The students are required to contact the driver on landing to confirm the pick-up location. Should an incoming flight be delayed, holding the departure of the school minibus or arranging a taxi will be considered.

Unaccompanied minors

Depending on the airline and the age of the child traveling, your child may qualify as an unaccompanied minor. It is the parent’s responsibility to complete the relevant paperwork for the airline and forward this to the child’s Housemaster well in advance of the date of travel. Please note, due to airport security, our drivers are unable to leave the minibus to escort or meet your child in the terminal.

Transfer requests

Should your child require airport transport, please fill in this online form. Minibus transfer information, timings, name of the driver and their contact number will be distributed to the students, parents and Housemasters prior to the holidays.

Luggage restrictions

Due to the limited number of seats in our minibuses, student baggage is restricted to 1 x average size suitcase and 1 x hand baggage per person. If exceeded, baggage could be left at the airport or school in order to allow students on the minibus.
