Morning Minibus Service

Westbourne House offer a morning school transport service from Monday to Friday.


Based on the interest received from parents, we are running three minibus routes; South Harting, Midhurst/Petworth loop and the Witterings.

The interest received for each of these locations was reasonably spread out. We have therefore included pick-up points to accommodate as many families as possible whilst trying to keep the time of the journey at a reasonable length.

Midhurst -Petworth Loop

The pick-up points along the route are as follows;

Midhurst (the Grange Car Park)
Petworth (old Augustus Brant location by the A272/Station Road roundabout)

The Witterings

The pick-up points along the route are as follows;

East Wittering - Billy's on the Beach
West Wittering - Old House at Home
Itchenor - Waterstone Close
The Lamb (pub)
Birdham – Birdham Stores

South Harting

The pick-up points along the route are as follows;

South Harting (The White Hart)

Reserve a minibus seat

We still have seats available on each of the routes therefore please complete the minibus reservation form to confirm your place/s. Seats will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Minibus Reservation Form

Whilst every effort has been made to accommodate as many families as possible, we recognise that some will be disappointed. We ask that you please indicate your interest and location by emailing Robyn Aubrey at so that your location may be considered in the future.


The minibus service will be offered at a price of £165 per term per child. A 5% sibling discount is offered.

Additional Information

Age of Children

Children must be 5 years old to use the minibus service.

Drivers & Vehicles

We are using the Westbourne House School minibuses for the morning school pick up service.

The buses are driven by Westbourne House staff.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the same person drives a route every day, on occasion we will have to use alternative drivers.

We have decided not to include a chaperone, in order to keep costs down for parents.


Families will be billed for the minibus service in advance of each term.

Running Late or Absent

The minibuses are on a strict timetable to arrive at each pick up spot on time. So as to ensure the children arrive at school on time, the minbuses will not be able to wait for any late arrivals.

If you know you will not be taking the bus one day, we ask that you please send a
text message to your driver.

Arriving at School

The minibuses park in the Pre-Prep car park. The driver escorts children into the gates, and will escort any Pre-Prep children into the building. The driver will also remind children to take all their belongings, and will assist with any big bags or instruments.
