When booking transport and travel arrangements for your son or daughter, please note that we offer a scheduled coach service, in partnership with Centurion Coaches, to London (Richmond), Heathrow Airport and Bath Spa railway station for the end of Term breaks and Exeat weekends.

Airport and Railway transfer. Terminal 3 is temporarily closed and, therefore, pupils will not be able to access Giraffe Stop Café (the usual meeting place). In light of this, we will collect each of the students from Terminal 2 instead – from the M&S Simply Food store which can be found on Level 1 in the Arrivals Lounge at Terminal 2. Click here for more information.
Taxi transport plans must be arranged directly by parents/guardians with any business you chose. A local taxi company, Prestige Taxi’s, offer service routes to Downside School and you can make a booking directly with them via a dedicated email address they have set up for this purpose at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a personal arrangement/contract of engagement between you as the parent or guardian, and the taxi company, not with the School. Prestige Taxis are familiar with the practise of providing transfers to Downside School and have experience of collecting and delivering pupils to our site.
Current parents: please copy in your House Master / House Mistress so that they are fully informed of your children’s travel plans.
