Welcome to the Joint Bus Service
The Joint bus service is an alliance between St Helen and St Katharine, Abingdon School and The Manor Preparatory School all located in close proximity. We bring over 1,000 children to and from school daily from across the Thames Valley area. Our vast network of 25 AM routes, cover a 26 mile area talking in Bicester, Burford, Henley, Goring, Lambourn, Lechlade, Newbury, Oxford, Pangbourne, Stokenchurch, Thame, Thatcham, Twyford, Wantage & Witney.
We are working with 5 coach operators Baileys, Blunsdons, Grayline, Pearces, Plastows & Whites. They all adhere to safer recruitment guidelines and our fleet age profile ensuring coaches they use are not more than 10 years old. You can find more information on our Bus Operators by clicking on the link at the top of the page.
For ease of control and convenience, the arrangements are co-ordinated from a single point: St Helen and St Katharine provides this role. Prefects from both Abingdon and St Helen's, who have been given joint training, supervise passengers.
