Grammar School buses 2017-2018.

These services may be subject to change from September 2017. Changed timetables will be published alongside (right) Please check regularly for updates.

Service 448 from Poole via Hamworthy is currently being diverted via the Twin Sails Bridge whilst Poole Bridge is closed. This diversion is expected to continue in to the new school year.

Temporary timetables can be found in the list alongside.

We provide financial subsidy for a number of dedicated school bus services. These services are provided to carry pupils and students with Borough of Poole bus passes, passes obtained from the Bus Company as well as daily fare-paying passengers.

In addition there are other bus routes serving schools that are either provided commercially (without subsidy) or are supported by other local authorities.

To find out whether your child might be entitled to free transport assistance, please see the Home to School Transport information.

Please note that Damory Coaches no longer accept the Key smartcard or Zone, Saver and Network tickets on school bus services. Pupils who do not qualify for a Borough of Poole bus pass (free travel or subsidised travel) may purchase single or return fares on a daily basis or purchase a Scholars Pass from the bus company.
