Getting to School
School minibuses - our new and enhanced transport system
At Blackheath High School, we operate a private minibus fleet and coach service to transport girls to and from school, with our own regular drivers. Our network is extensive and includes direct services from the City of London, Tower Gateway, Hackney, Whitechapel, Canary Wharf, Isle of Dogs, North Greenwich, Wapping, Canada Water, Rotherhithe, Deptford, Brockley, Lewisham, Greenwich, Blackheath, Woolwich, Eltham and Chislehurst.
Due to high demand since the opening of the new Senior School, we are delighted we have introduced a new enhanced and extensive school transport system, to cover even more areas of London.
To further help our busy parents, we have introduced a new interactive journey planner and flexible online booking system to enable parents to book a place for their daughter on the school bus. Simply type in your postcode and find your nearest bus stop, check timetables and make bookings. Find out more about our travel provider, Vectare.
We operate a Travel Buddy scheme for new Year 7 girls wishing to use our School Transport Service. Girls who live in the same area can be partnered with fellow students and travel in together. We will organise the buddying up as part of our Year 7 Induction Programme in the summer term of Year 6.
