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 with routes stretching from Kettering, Daventry, Brackley, Towcester, Milton Keynes, Olney, Wellingborough and Northampton. 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 in advance for regular fixed termly passes for all 10 journeys a week, or for specific regular journeys to fit around your specific family requirements. We also offer a flexible premium ticket for ad-hoc usage, and this can be booked online in advance of travel as and when required (should capacity allow).

We are currently increasing the number of our own in-house school mini-buses, which offer a dedicated driver employed by the school specific to each route, vehicle tracking so you can see the location of the bus en-route, and an online account where you can see confirmation that your child has boarded the bus safely.

We operate three late bus routes, to Milton Keynes/Olney, Towcester/Brackley and Northampton/Kettering. These run Monday – Thursdays at a later departure time, allowing for a safe return journey to any students wishing to attend an after-school club/activity.
