Coach Transfers - 2012-2013
TIMINGS OF COACHES – PLEASE NOTE:
Students will be met by staff at Heathrow in the Terminal 3 arrivals lounge between 0600 & 0900 on the dates given for coaches from Heathrow to Concord. (Additional unstaffed evening coach transfers from Heathrow to Concord are often arranged for dates as indicated in brackets below.) Please also note that coaches taking students down to Heathrow are not accompanied by College staff.
Timings of coaches going to Heathrow are only finalised when students’ flight details are known. Students are asked to complete holiday forms and when these are collected in, about two weeks before any holiday, we organise coaches accordingly. It is most often the case that students take evening flights (i.e. departing 6pm or later) and coaches depart from Concord around 11am to enable students to catch such evening flights.
If students or parents reserve a seat on a bus to/ from Heathrow, there will be no charge for this service under normal circumstances. However, if a place on a bus is reserved and is not then used, a charge of £50 will be added to that student’s bill.
Reservations for seats on coaches can be made via e-mail to the Vice-Principal (Pastoral)’s office at the following address: VPPastoral@concordcollege.org.uk. Please book early and expect confirmation by return of your reservation since places on coaches are limited and numbers of coaches have to be booked in advance of student arrival and departure days.
