Free school transport to and from school is available to any student below the age of sixteen who lives further than three miles from the school and for whom QE is the designated school.
All school transport is handled by Devon County Council, so any requests or inquiries about this issue need to go straight to them via the Devon County Council Website, or by contacting Tim Hamblin on 01392 383 000. This includes decisions about who may or may not travel on school buses. More details are available in the Guide for Parents.
We would encourage students to cycle or walk to school if they can do so safely and provide lockers and bike storage facilities for those who do.
In cases where buses cannot run because of severe weather, a message will appear on the top right of this website, text messages will be sent to parents and local radio stations will be informed, usually by 7.30.
