School Bus Information

Faraday School runs a subsidised bus service, which is available to children in all year groups.

Morning Bus

In the mornings, the bus currently operates one route. Stops available include: Leyton Station, Stratford, Island Gardens Limehouse, Bromley-by-Bow, Mile End and Canary Wharf.

Parents are required to commit to the morning bus for five mornings a week and the journey to school costs £6 per day or £4.50 for siblings.

Afternoon Bus

The afternoon bus service leaves Faraday at 3:30pm. This is a more flexible service and costs £6 per day.  Pupils do not need to take the afternoon bus every day. 

All 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. We will always provide parents with written notice of any route changes.

Each bus has a passenger assistant on board for every journey to supervise children and ensure their seat belts are securely fastened before departure. Parents are provided with a contact number for their child's bus and will receive text notifications in the event of any unexpected delays. 

Parents are asked to provide half a terms written notice, if they wish to cancel their child’s place on the service for the following term.
