There is an extensive network of buses, operated by voluntary parent associations and commercial suppliers, which are available to boys for travel to and from school. If you would like your son to travel to school by bus, we would recommend that you contact the relevant transport provider as soon as possible to ensure a place for your son. As most buses serve all four Harpur Trust Schools, places are limited.   

Whilst the school does not endorse these transport suppliers, we have used these companies for many years along with other independent schools in Bedford. It is the responsibility of parents to organise transport to and from school and to make their own checks as they deem necessary. Please contact providers directly for the latest information on times and costs.
