Alton School

Transport

Our pupils come from many parts of Hampshire and the surrounding counties. We therefore recognise how important it is to parents that suitable transport is provided. We provide an excellent service to our pupils by operating our own fleet of minibuses and a people carrier to collect pupils. We are  also within 10 minutes walking distance of Alton Railway Station which serves Farnham, Aldershot (change for Guildford)  and Woking.

We currently operate routes to and from school each day from Basingstoke, Farnham, Haslemere, Liphook/Petersfield and Winchester and it is available to pupils between Year 3 in the Prep School and Sixth Form. The cost of transport is additional to school fees.

The Basingstoke minibus covers Beech, Bentworth, Medstead, Four Marks, Cliddesden and Basingstoke.

We have two minibuses covering the Farnham area Farnham A Timetable covers Farnham, Firgrove Hill,  Shortheath and Sandrock Hill.  Farnham B collects from Boundstone, Rowledge and Bentley.

The Haslemere minibus covers East Worldham, Kingsley, Lindford, Headley, Grayshott and Haslemere, Beaconhill, and Churt.   The Petersfield /Liphook minibus covers Selborne, Greatham, Liss, Petersfield, Rake and Liphook.   The Stroud (West Meon) people carrier covers Lower Farringdon and Meon Hut Crossroads.

Transport from Winchester is now split between two minibuses Winchester A  (Itchen Abbas) and  Winchester B  (Bishops Sutton).
