Travel and School Bus Routes

Pupils attending Ditcham Park School are fortunate to enjoy a stunning rural location in which to learn, exercise and play.  To ensure we remain easily accessible to those families who want their child(ren) to benefit from our School’s safe and nurturing countryside location, but are not able to drive independently to Ditcham Park on a daily basis,  we operate an excellent and comprehensive “Home-School” bus service throughout our catchment area.

A network of 9 minibus and coach routes are available from September 2021.  Details of the current pick up and drop off points are shown on the diagram below.   Many of these, particularly Petersfield, link easily to a number of public bus and train services including the mainline Portsmouth-Guildford rail service which calls at Petersfield Station, which is also one of our regular bus route stops.

Our routes are provided by AMK, who we have worked with successfully for many years.  Consequently, our parents and their children get to know their AMK driver well and we have been delighted to receive very positive feedback from parents during the most recent service survey.

“Adam is great, so punctual you can set your watch by him”

“So good with our children, and a 1st class driver”

“A kind and caring guy, who looks after our kids”

Further details, including a timetable and schedule of charges, are available from the School Office and/or Bursary.

Covid-19: Please note that for September 2021 all pupils aged 11 and over, and any adults, using the DPS School bus network are required to wear a face-covering in line with Government/Public Health recommendations – unless they are medically exempt.  The School will comply with further Government/PHE advice issued in due course for October and beyond and will advise pupils and parents accordingly.

Performer. Ditcham has given me the confidence to develop as a performer – singing AC/DC at our Arts Festival was a bit different from what I usually sing in the cathedral choir; I loved it.

I like all the books in Nursery. My favourite book is the one about sharks. When I am big I want to go and see lots of sharks underwater. I also want to be a policeman and drive a police car with a loud siren
