School Bus


The bus service is made available for pupils in J1-S6.


It is operated outwith the normal school hours, and this service is offered with the parents’ full knowledge and understanding that the driver may be the only adult on the bus, and therefore it is essential that any child using this service behaves at all times in the manner that is set out in the Code of Conduct.

The school buses are contracted to Ratho Coaches http://www.rathocoaches.co.uk/


Pick Up and Drop Off

Children must be at the designated stops 5 minutes before departure time as drivers will be unable to wait for latecomers.   This takes into consideration others waiting further along the route, it is not possible to wait beyond the stated departure time for each destination.  If you and your child are not there, the driver will assume that you will make your own way into school that day.
