School Service - Coach Hire
Much of our work involves transporting schoolchildren not only around our region but from far and wide to see the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and also large cities such as Manchester and Liverpool. We work for over 120 schools in the local area and from London and major cites up and down the country who are heading up to the Lakes and Dales to experience the countryside. These range from transporting children and students to swimming and sports fixtures to days out, theatres and other educational destinations.
Some parts of our local area are well off the beaten track and it is important that children in such areas don’t lose out because of their location. We try our best to work for our local schools and create a safe working partnership with these schools to everybody’s advantage.
The Field Studies Council (FSC) operates a Field Centre at Grange-over-Sands and we bring children to the Centre not only from schools all over the United Kingdom but also from the main UK airports for international visitors. We also take smaller groups from the Field Centre to more remote sites in and around the Lake District.
Carrying schoolchildren is a responsibility we take very seriously. To this end all our private hire vehicles are fitted with seat belts and all drivers engaged on school work are approved by the Local Authorities. All our drivers are DBS checked by the local county councils.
We offer vehicles with sizes 24, 29, 35, 41, 51, 53, 57, 65 and 70 seats. For a quote on a school trip please phone 01524 733 831. We can provide cheaper quotes if the vehicles leaves your school at 09:00 hrs and are back at your school by 14:45 / 15:00 hrs (meaning we can utilise the vehicle on school runs either side of your hire).
