School Transport

Ramsgate Train Station

Ramsgate train station is a short 10 minute walk from the school. There is a direct train to Canterbury every half an hour, taking approximately 20 minutes to complete its journey. Trains travel from Ramsgate to London Charing Cross and London Victoria, and the new high speed rail link takes just 75 minutes to London St Pancras International.

School Bus Service

There is an excellent bus service which links the five Thanet towns of Ramsgate, Broadstairs, Margate, Westgate and Birchington. There are inward journeys but no return journeys on Saturdays due to Games fixtures. This means a total of 11 trips are available per week.

Starting from Year 2, children are welcome to join our school bus routes, provided they demonstrate the social maturity needed to thrive in a bus environment.

Booking forms for transport are available below. Please contact for further details or to submit your booking form.
