School Transport and Before and After School Care

School buses

The school runs a number of dedicated bus services covering key catchment areas.

Around half of our pupils travel to school from outside the city of Dundee. Many use public bus or train services to reach us, where dedicated school bus services do not currently operate.

The bus services operated by the School currently run from:

  • Brechin, via Forfar
  • Coupar Angus (via Blairgowrie, Alyth and Meigle)
  • St Andrews (via Strathkinness, Leuchars and Drumoig)
  • Arbroath (via Carnoustie and Monifieth)
  • Bridge of Earn (via Perth, St Madoes, Inchture and Longforgan)
  • Glenrothes (via Freuchie, Ladybank, Cupar, Dairsie and Balmullo)

All our bus services are timed to arrive at School at around 8.45am, and depart at 4pm. Younger children finishing school at 3.10pm are cared for free of charge until departure time. On Fridays, the buses leave the school at 3.35pm and will arrive at their respective destinations approximately half an hour earlier than previous days.

Current charges for all services may be found on the Fees page. Parents may pay in advance, either at the beginning of the session or at the beginning of each term. Where tuition fees are paid in ten monthly instalments, bus charges may be included in the monthly payment, provided parents commit to use the service for the entire school session.

It should be noted that these services are primarily intended for pupils travelling on a ‘return’ basis and the offer of a ‘single’ fare place is discretionary. Priority will also be given to pupils in the Junior School.

Further information regarding the day-to-day running of our bus services is available from the School's Transport Coordinator, Miss Heenan, on 01382 202921. 

Wraparound care

Before School Care is available for a small charge from 8am - 8.30am each morning in the Junior Years, and pupils may go to their classrooms from 8.30am onwards.

After School Care is available free of charge until 4pm each day in the Junior Years, and for a modest charge between 4pm and 6pm. Pupils may attend on either a regular or a casual basis.

Current charges for Before and After School Care can be found on the Fees page.
