Lancing pupils arrive at the College daily, weekly and termly from a wide range of home locations.
There are good public transport links to Lancing and the College supplements these with a comprehensive transport service largely using its own fleet of modern minibuses.
Where feasible the College would like to encourage parents to use the bus service, not only to help alleviate potential traffic congestion on the College site at peak times, but also for the obvious environmental benefit of general traffic reduction.
We review the routes every year and the feasibility of each route is very much dependent upon the number of pupils that use the service, even though the College substantially subsidises the service.
Local Transport Schedule
Please see below for details of the routes currently being offered, together with the collection and drop off points, and current timings.
All routes operate to and from the College on Monday to Friday. On Saturdays, the day that half term starts, and on the last day of term, a service to College only operates. The service on a Friday evening of an Exeat weekend leaves the College at 4.00pm. The buses aim to be in College by 8.10am each morning and depart from the College at 6.05pm sharp.
For your information, the following should be noted:
- Bookings are only accepted for the whole term
- We can offer mornings only, afternoons only or both journeys
- We offer sibling discounts
- We can offer occasional bookings on certain routes if space allows (at a slightly higher cost per trip)

We are experienced in supporting pupils as they travel to and from the College which is well located for both Gatwick (40 minutes/45km) and Heathrow airports (75minutes/108km). We operate a regular shuttle service to the airports at the beginning and end of term and, as necessary, at half term.
Bus Services from London, Cobham and Guildford
Lancing runs two regular bus services to London.
There are two routes which are available to transport pupils to/from Lancing on a regular basis.
- Bus one runs from Victoria to Lancing, stopping in Wimbledon and Richmond.
- Bus two runs from Cobham Services to Lancing, stopping in Guildford.
The bus runs both ways on Exeat weekends, at Half Term and at the end of term. On ordinary weekends the bus only runs one way for the return trip to Lancing on Sunday evening.
