Travel Service

St Andrew’s understands the difficulties overseas parents experience when organising their child’s detailed travel plans. The school is happy to organise taxis to airports and guardians at parents’ request. A minibus to St Andrew’s will be available to return boarders and flexiboarders from Clapham Junction and Tunbridge Wells following exeat weekends and from Clapham Junction after half terms.

We also offer a supervised train service from Eastbourne to London Victoria each Friday afternoon of an exeat weekend or half term.
