Millais School

In Pursuit of Excellence


A large number of girls travel to and from school by bus. At 3.00pm, girls catching a bus home should report to the Main School Hall and join the relevant bus queue. Travel prefects assist staff in boarding the girls safely onto the buses and have defined responsibilities for the duration of their journey. Late buses exist to enable girls to travel home safely after attending Extended School Activities.

For general journey planning queries, including services in and around Horsham, please visit the Traveline website.

For specific School Transport queries, including entitlement to assistance with transport and route swops, please call 01243 753530 or email  It is also very important that you notify School Transport if your family address changes as it could alter your eligibility to assistance with transport.  The bus operators cannot alter or arrange your child's transport - all queries must go through School Transport 01243 753530.
