The Manor House


Minibus Service

In addition to the full bus route network as detailed below, operated jointly between The Manor, St Helen’s and Abingdon School, The Manor runs several morning and afternoon minibus services.

This service is designed for children from Reception and offers booster seats where necessary. A second member of staff (in addition to the driver) will be on board to assist younger children with seat belts, luggage and their safe delivery to the classroom on arrival at The Manor.
