Airport Transfers to and from Bloxham School

Minibus Airport Transfers
The 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, coach or train, but would incur an additional fee. Alternatively, there are frequent independent airport transfer bus or train services between all London airports, should students fly into another destination and wish to meet the school transport at London Heathrow. This should be arranged by parents and the school must be advised well in advance.

Departures
Minibuses will leave at the times and dates stated below. This has been put in place to allow parents to book flights in advance and avoid children having long waits 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 by parents or guardians. Please use these helpful links: National Express coaches & Train line

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

Unaccompanied Minors
Depending on the airline destination and the age of the child traveling, your child may qualify as an unaccompanied minor. It is the parent's responsibility to fill out the relevant paper work for the airline and to forward all the paper work to the child's Housemaster, again, well in advance of the date of flying.

Most airlines require an escort to wait with the child until their flight has taken off. We can arrange for an escort, however there will be an additional cost for the time the escort has to wait.

Flight Information
Please ensure that both outgoing and return flight information, including your child's contact mobile number for the return journey, is sent to Matthew Tighe the Transport Manager ([email protected]) and your Child's Housemaster/mistress at least five days before the holiday starts (see information required below).

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.

Transfer request
Should your child requires 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.

Minibuses
Due to the limited number of seats on our minibuses, student baggage is restricted to 1 x average size suit case 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.
