Walking to School
The School recommends walking to school whenever possible, or alternatively to use public transport.
The School is part of STARS, TfL’s accreditation scheme for London: Sustainable Travel: Active, Responsible, Safe. We are currently Silver Accredited by the STARS programme and are working towards achieving Silver or Gold Accreditation this academic year.

STARS supports pupils’ wellbeing, helps to reduce congestion at the school gates and improves road safety and air quality.
On Bedford Square:
- Bicycle racks can be found less than 1 minute’s walk away from the School entrance.

The school bus service is operated by a private coach company working with the School on a daily basis to ensure a safe and smooth service. Each bus has a chaperone responsible for supervising pupils during the journey.
Bus maps are designed with great care using current pupil data and with the intention of benefiting as many of our families as possible. We currently have four bus routes, covering South West, North West and North East London.
Please note that School Buses will only stop at the Bedford Square site. Pupils attending the Russell Square site will not be offered the School Bus service.
