School buses operate from a number of locations within the City and Shire. Each of our school buses have a member of staff or representative from First Group to accompany the children to and from school. These representatives are a friendly face and ensure the agreed drop off and pick up arrangements are in place between families and the school. Many children enjoy the daily commute with their friends which allows parents the comfort that their child is safe and well looked after.
The school runs three 'yellow buses' in the mornings, from Peterculter, Westhill and Ellon, for Junior and Senior pupils, arriving at approximately 8.15 am. Each bus is supervised by an adult in addition to the driver.
Two school buses run at the end of the day and are available for Junior School pupils only. End of day buses travel to Mannofield and Peterculter with various stops along the way.
Please note that Nursery children must be signed in and out of the Nursery on a daily basis and are therefore not able to use the School buses. P1-P4 children must be met at the bus stop by a parent, guardian or named representative, or walk with an older sibling (P5-P7) if consent is given. P5-7 pupils do not need to be met at the bus stop and may walk home on their own.
Places on the school morning and afternoon buses can be reserved on a termly basis and are billed monthly in arrears.
Senior pupils are transported to Countesswells at 1.45pm on their games day and make their own way home. In addition buses are provided for teams travelling to Countesswells after school for training.
