ALL PUBLIC ROUTES

A King’s High School ID Card allows pupils to travel on any normal public bus to the vicinity of school at concession rates.

We trust this information will help you should you live outside the immediate school area.  We have, at present over 300 pupils using the above services, suggesting that a brief bus trip to school is not seen as a major problem.
