School Coaches

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.

Coach Routes

Brentwood School operates the following coach routes:

  • Gidea Park/Ardleigh Green/Upminster/Hornchurch/Brentwood
  • Wickford/Billericay/Stock/Brentwood
  • Woodford Green/Chigwell/Ongar/Brentwood
  • Southend/Rayleigh/Laindon/Brentwood
  • Chafford Hundred/Grays/Orsett/Brentwood
  • Broomfield/Chelmsford/Margaretting

Please note that, from November 2015, the Wickford 16:10 and Southend 17:30 coaches will not stop at Mill Lane, Mill Road, Stock. We have reviewed all stops on the coach routes and have found that this stop does not meet the School’s safety standards. The nearest alternative stop is at the War Memorial in Stock.

Please note that for safety and efficiency, coaches are only able to stop at standard bus stops and cannot deviate from the established route unless there is a road closure.

Coach Times
Morning pick-up times on all routes are shown in the timetables below, arriving at School in time for morning registration. Parents and pupils are asked to note carefully the times and ensure that pupils are at the pick-up stops five minutes before the advertised time of departure.
