School Bus Information

Faraday School runs a subsidised bus service.

*********NEW ROUTES ANNOUNCED FOR AUTUMN 2016************

New stops at Stratford, Leytonstone High Road, Langdon Park and New Providence Wharf, starting September 2016.

In the mornings, the bus operates 4 routes, which covers 22 stops.  The route stretches as far north as Stratford, south of the river from Canada Water, west from Wapping and east from Silvertown, with many stops in between. 

Parents need to commit to the morning bus five mornings a week and the journey to schools costs £4.00 per day or £3.00 for siblings (2016/17 academic year).

In the afternoons, the bus provides a choice of 12 stops after clubs have finished. This is a more flexible service and costs £5 per day (2016/17 academic year). The bus leaves school at 4.50pm and there is currently no 3.35pm service.  Pupils do not need to take the afternoon bus every day.  If you elect to take the afternoon bus, you must also book a club or after school care.

Bus routes are subject to change according to demand and are planned in consultation between parents and Faraday School.  It may be possible to extend the route and to make additional stops, however, there is no guarantee.

A trained Passenger Assistant rides on the bus at all times.  Seat belts are provided and must be worn.
