Transport to King’s Worcester is straightforward, as the city is well connected by multiple road networks, has two train stations, and offers many daily coach services covering a wide radius and fitting in with the school day.

The King’s School Minibus and Coach Services

We offer our own minibus and coach services to make it as easy as possible for parents and pupils (from Year 3+) to travel to school; these are either fulfilled by King’s minibuses, which are driven by drivers employed by King’s; our partnered taxi company, Severn Taxis; or our partnered coach company, Commandery Coaches. All vehicles are driven by qualified and DBS-checked drivers.

We regularly review our transport provision and, as such, if we do not currently offer the route or location collection point you require, please do get in touch to discuss this further.  For more information on our pricing structure, please contact our Transport Manager, Ian Booth via

Transport App – ‘Student Safe’

We have established a partnership with StudentSafe; this downloadable Transport StudentSafe App allows parents and guardians to:

  • have access real-time tracking of bus services
  • receive real-time verification that children have boarded and alighted the bus at their stops
  • receive real-time notifications of delays and incidents
  • amend or cancel booking details for the next journey
  • use the self-booking calendar for booking or cancelling additional ad-hoc services should the need arise (subject to seat availability)

Our shared vision with StudentSafe is for a safer, better connected, and greener transport service, and we really hope that these parent-focused solutions will encourage more parents to use the service.

On top of the safeguarding benefits that the StudentSafe system will provide, an increase in the take-up of the service will also help to reduce car emissions substantially on the School Run across the King’s community.

The system is now open for bookings. *Note, this does not include the Hawford Shuttle – More information on this can be found below.
