Getting to School
We run supervised school mini-buses covering Norwich, Aylsham, Dereham and Fakenham every morning, and return journeys home on four days per week.The bus takes children from age 4 upwards, and seat belts are fitted as standard. Our ‘Bus Aunties’, Sheila Murray and Julie Willimott, accompany the children and driver on every journey, ensuring the children have a warm welcome.
Our mini-bus plans are flexible, please get in touch to find out more.
‘I thought I liked my new school but I actually love it. At this school everyone wants to do their best and no one is worried about being picked on for being clever at something. I am so happy.’

INTERNATIONALLY ACCESSIBLE LOCATION
Despite its rural location, Beeston Hall is very well located for children living further afield. We are just 35 minutes from Norwich Airport and its uniquely convenient connection to Amsterdam’s international hub (Schiphol). Children particularly like this route because of the small scale and ease of transfer, and KLM’s service for unaccommpanied minors – one of the few airlines still operating this facility. Stansted Airport is two hours away and London 3 hours away. Although there is a train station five minutes from the school we can arrange transport with approved drivers or chaperones to/from these connections, and are happy to make arrangements for transfers on behalf of parents.
