Located close to Guildford city centre, Tormead is fortunate to be served by a variety of transportation facilities.
Many girls use the train to commute to school, as the nearest station – Guildford London Road – is only a short walk from school. There are numerous connecting trains from the main Guildford Station, both during the rush hour and after school.
A number of public buses stop close to school: Routes 25, 36, 37, 463 and 479.
There is a drop-off facility in front of the Senior School for parents who wish to drive their daughter to school. Staff are on duty every morning to help Prep School girls cross the street to the Prep site.
Both the Senior and Prep School sites offer bike racks to store bicycles safely for those girls wishing to cycle to school.
The Tormead Coach Service offers pupils and parents a convenient, safe, reliable and environmentally friendly means of transport to and from school. Booking is easy via an app, which is available online via the booking website.
The school actively encourages participation in its broad and varied range of after school activities. As we do not currently offer a late coach, discounts are available to allow girls to participate, along with the flexibility to use the coach service on an adhoc basis. Coaches arrive at school at before 8.15am each morning (traffic dependent) and depart at 4.12pm each afternoon.
Our Coach Stewards (Senior School girls) work closely with the Coach Coordinator, promoting the on-board safety and wellbeing of the girls and monitoring routes and timings. The Coach Service is open to pupils of all ages once they have settled into school life. Arrangements are in place to escort Prep girls to and from their coaches.
Timetable and Bookings
We currently operate eight routes, using well regarded local coach operators, transporting over 125 girls each day. Areas covered include Camberley, Cobham, Esher, Ewhurst, Farnham, Haslemere, Peaslake and Weybridge.
The latest routes, timetables, fare information and online booking form are accessed via this link: www.ridekura.com/tormead-school. The timetable is subject to slight change on an annual basis to reflect changes in demand and school requirements.
We require a termly commitment and payment is added to your fees invoice. The cost of the service is divided evenly into three termly instalments and added to the school fees invoice.
Each girl is issued with a personalised coach pass and there are a range of pass options available, enabling girls to take differing numbers of journeys each week. There are also sibling and study leave discounts. Demand for places can be high and we endeavour to accommodate all requests. However, where spaces are limited, priority will be given to those requiring full time tickets and those travelling the furthest. Our terms and conditions require a termly commitment from parents with a full term’s notice in writing required to cancel a coach seat.
For further queries about the Coach Service, please contact the Amy Drudge, Coach Co-ordinator, on 01483 796082.
