Bus Services

The school bus service is an efficient, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly way to travel to school.

The school will continue to run buses to and from the school on the following routes in 2024-25.

The bus routes below run at the beginning and end of the school day unless otherwise stated.

Route 1: Cambourne – Madingley P&R – Perse Prep – Perse Upper
Route 2: Royston – Melbourn – Harston – Trumpington P&R – Perse Prep – Perse Upper
Route 3: Prep – Upper
(Service only runs after school and is for Prep pupils only)

The following travel options are available – mornings only, afternoons only or return journeys. Places on the bus must be booked for the whole term either mornings, afternoons or returns. Unfortunately, it is not possible to accommodate different travel arrangements on different weeks, and places are booked all week (Monday to Friday) for the whole of the term.

Bookings are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Every effort is made to accommodate all pupils who wish to travel by bus, but no guarantee can be made, especially if an application is received close to the start of term. Please note that bus fares are billed termly in advance. To book a place on a school bus, please click the button below.

All our drivers are DBS-checked and our staff are on hand to supervise pupils getting on the school bus at the end of the day.

If you wish to cancel your child’s place on any of our routes, one full term’s notice must be provided. Please email buses@perse.co.uk to let us know.

The school reserves the right to make changes to any of the school bus routes, including removing stops or even discontinuing a route, if it is considered necessary to do so. The school would endeavour to give parents as much notice as possible in the event of any major change, and would provide not less than one full term’s notice before implementing the change.

Minor alterations, e.g. a change of pick-up time in response to traffic conditions and to ensure prompt arrival at school, may be made with less notice as required.

For any questions regarding the school buses, please contact our Transport Administrator at buses@perse.co.uk
