Bus Routes

Our safe, efficient and reliable school transport covers 17 routes throughout Somerset and Devon, with the catchment area for day pupils extending up to 20-30 miles around Wellington.  The school transport runs Monday to Friday, departing from school at 5.00pm to enable all pupils  to take advantage of the busy after school programme. 

Many parents, who live on the outskirts of Exeter and to the North and East of Taunton testify that it is faster to get to Wellington using hte M5 than it is to the centre of these busy towns. Our drivers are fully checked in line with Wellington School Safeguarding Policy and all our vehicles are maintained to the highest standard and are regularly checked.

Our zone charges for a day return as from September 2024 are:

Less than 5 miles     zone 1    £6.60

5 – 10 miles              zone 2    £7.70

10 – 20 miles            zone 3    £8.80

Over 20 miles           zone 4    £10.45


The place on the bus is for a minimum of one term; the charge is made on the School termly bill in arrears with no reductions made for missed journeys. We can still take bookings during the term, or for ad hoc journeys, if there is space on the bus.

Starting pick-up points and routes for school buses do vary each year dependent upon demand, therefore slight variations to routes may occur. Please contact the Campus Office by emailing transport@wellington-school.org.uk for further information.
