Bus Services

We operate three daily shuttle bus routes to help children travel to and from school in a safe, convenient and environmentally sustainable way.

School buses help to reduce car travel, thereby reducing congestion and pollution in and around the school sites, as well as saving travel time for busy parents/carers.

The bus routes below run at the beginning and end of the school day.

Cambourne – Madingley P&R – Perse Prep – Perse Upper
Royston – Melbourn – Harston – Trumpington P&R – Perse Prep – Perse Upper
Cambridge Railway Station – Perse Prep
(Service only available to Prep pupils and priority is given to passengers travelling by train)

The following travel options are available – mornings only, afternoons only and return journeys. Places on the bus must be booked for the whole term in the mornings, afternoons or both. Unfortunately, it is not possible to accommodate different travel arrangements on different weeks, so a regular pattern needs to be booked.

Bookings are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Every effort is made to accommodate all pupils who wish to travel by bus, but no guarantee can be made, especially if an application is received close to the start of term. Please note that bus fares are billed termly in advance. To book a place on the shuttle bus, click the button below.

All our drivers are DBS-checked and our staff are on hand to supervise pupils getting on the school bus at the end of the day.

For any questions regarding the school buses, please contact our Transport Administrator at buses@astronomicalhorse.com
