Travelling from Coventry

The Journey from Coventry by Dhruvika, Year 13

“You would think that travelling from Coventry would entail a long, arduous journey but in reality, with the help of the minibus service provided by the school, it’s quick and easy. My daily routine is considerably shortened because of the accessibility of the minibus service. After waking up at around 7am, my train is at 8:11am from Coventry Station and it arrives at Rugby by 8:22, where we are picked up by Mr Barnard and arrive at school by 8:40. As you can see, it’s a relatively stress-free process with the train journey itself being very short and it’s the perfect time to catch up with other friends who take the train with you. The friendly atmosphere of the train station also means that it’s easy to ask for help and even take the train on your own if you leave early. Our afternoon train ride is at 4pm so we attempt to get to the minibus as fast as possible so that we can arrive at Coventry Station by 4:10 and usually I arrive home by 4:20. I hope you consider the minibus service provided by the school because it reduces time spent travelling to and from school and most importantly increases your time to relax.”

The service is charged at £600/year and is payable either in full prior to the start of September, or in 8 monthly payments of £75/month from September to April inclusive. Payments are made via Parentmail and Travel Passes are issued by the Finance Team.

Please note we are unable to offer reduced fees to students in year 13 on study leave who wish to make only occasional use of the bus as the cost of providing the service is fixed.

Seats are limited to a maximum of 17 and these will be issued on a strict first come, first served basis. Use of the service is for Year 12 and Year 13 students only and priority is given to students travelling from Coventry.
