Transport to School

School transport.

We have an extensive minibus service running across 3 key routes for your convenience.

If you are dropping off or picking your child up, we have created a one-way system on-site to enable everyone to comfortably enter and exit the school grounds.

School shuttle bus.

To make the school journey easier for parents living further away from the Cumnor House Schools, we operate 3 school buses that operate daily serving Clapham South, Tooting Bec, Streatham, Upper Norwood and Caterham, Sanderstead, Hamsey Green, Warlingham & Purley.*

The exact routes are reviewed annually depending on the locations of the children requiring the service. There is high demand for these places and you should register your interest in a place by 31 May for the following academic year.

Our buses also operate between our Boys’ School and Girls’ School sites in the morning and after school for your convenience, these are bookable via Cognita Connect.

Pick-up times are as follows:

Cumnor House Boys

7:45 am 15:15 pm

Cumnor House Girls

“The shuttle bus provides a much needed service to the logistics of having two children in two campuses. The transport team and after school club team really look after the children and focus on what they need at the beginning and end of the day.”

– Cumnor House Parent

Children at multiple schools.

If you have children at both schools (Cumnor Girls and Cumnor Boys), we recognise that it is not possible for you to be in two places at once to drop off and pick up your children.

That’s why we operate regular shuttle bus services between the campuses before and after school.

You can choose which school is more convenient to you and we will arrange for your child(ren) to be shuttled across on one of our fleet of minibuses. This service is pre-bookable via Cognita Connect and is free of charge.

This service operates in the morning and afternoon at set times.
