School Bus Information

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

In the mornings, the bus operates 2 routes, which covers 12 stops. Stops available include, Westferry, Island Gardens, Royal Wharf, Pontoon Dock, Stratford, Mile End, Wapping and Canary Wharf.

For families who live in the Greenwich area, we advise walking through the Greenwich Foot Tunnel to Island Gardens, where your child will be able to board the bus near the exit of the foot tunnel.  Or have you heard about the 'secret' ferry.

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

Our afternoon bus service offers a choice of 12 stops after clubs have finished. This is a more flexible service and costs £6 per day. Afternoon buses depart from school at 4.50pm.  Pupils do not need to take the afternoon bus every day.  Children using the afternoon bus  will be required to attend an after school club or stay in 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 and 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.
