Bede's operates one of the largest school minibus fleets in the UK, our vehicles are maintained to the highest standards and operated to full transport legislation.
All our professional drivers are fully trained, have DBS clearance and must complete safeguarding training. The drivers are easily identified by their Bede’s uniforms and lanyard badges. They are polite, courteous and work hard to ensure each journey operates within a stress-free environment. Our Transport Manager, Mr. Kevin Read and the support team have extensive knowledge of passenger transport and are always happy to help accommodate where possible. To make sure we operate a safe and roadworthy fleet of vehicles we have our own fully equipped vehicle repair workshop supported by a fully qualified motor vehicle engineer.
For our pupil’s safety, we constantly review our routes and carry out an extensive risk assessment at each bus collection and drop off point. Our fleet of around 35 vehicles operate to strict timetables travelling trust-wide across both Bedes campuses to most local towns and villages. They arrive at the school before lessons start and depart after lessons finish.
There is also a late bus service for pupils who take part in extra lessons or activities. During the day and at weekends. Our vehicles are never idle, transporting our pupils to various matches, activities and trips throughout the school term.
