School Coaches

Our Coach Routes

Brentwood School operates five dedicated coach routes across Essex for pupils travelling to and from School. This enables pupils to travel securely from areas not well served by public transport. It is an opportunity to make friends across year groups and encourages independence.

To book your child on one of our bus routes, please click here to fill in your details. This will then be submitted to our Transport Co-ordinator, Mr Barry Palmer.
