Northampton High is conveniently situated for families from across Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and beyond.

We run a full transport programme for pupils to travel to and from school by bus. Our buses are used exclusively by our pupils and are a popular choice, ensuring children arrive at school safely and prepared for the day.

Bookings may be made for individual journeys, regular journeys, or for all school travel – the booking system allows you to book only the journeys you need.

From September 2021, we have made a number of enhancements to the School Bus Service to improve our service provision to parents, whilst maintaining the high level of service that you have come to expect. For example, we have streamlined routes to both the north and south of the school to provide quicker journey times for pupils. Based on postcode analysis, we have also been able to add an additional 10 stops to the network, to ensure that as many pupils as possible have the option to travel to school via a sustainable travel method.

As per previous years, three late services will continue to operate each evening to cater for students that are taking part in after-school activities.

Our School Bus Service connects with key public transport interchanges including Northampton Railway Station and a new stop at Milton Keynes Coachway. This allows pupils to travel by bus and parents to travel to work via public transport, or for parents and pupils to travel part of the journey to school together.
