The School operates a daily bus service for Grades K-12, using several private hire bus and coach companies. The majority of students are able to enjoy a door-to-door service. When this is not possible, the transport office designates a pick-up point as near as possible to the home, and parents are expected to escort their younger child/ren to and from the bus.
Although the companies make every effort to keep a regular driver on each run, this is often not possible for a variety of reasons. If the bus is not required to pick up a student on a particular day for reasons of illness or vacation, parents are requested to inform the transport office directly, not the drivers or couriers. The transport office can be notified by fax, email or telephone.
Transportation at ASL is a team effort. The transport office, the bus drivers, parents and children all cooperate to ensure that students are safe and secure on their way to and from School.

The transport department is often asked about the hiring of school minibuses for private parties. The home to school minibus service is run by several different companies. Listed below are some of the companies the School uses that are available for private work. The transport office is always happy to help, but if parents need to hire a bus or coach, contact should be made directly with one of the bus companies. The Lower School discourages 'birthday bus' arrangements during the week as they cause significant disruption to the school day. Please avoid involving the School as a meeting or drop off point for any private bus arrangements.
