Getting to School

Public Transport

Many of our students travel to school via trains, the public bus network and school bus routes commissioned by Kent County Council, which serve many of the villages and towns surrounding Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks. For information on school buses and on bus passes that can save on the cost of travel to and from school, visit Kent County Council's transport page.

To guarantee that the bus pass can be collected from school on the first day of term in September, the application must be completed by Kent County Council’s summer deadline.

For information on trains and season tickets visit SouthEasternRailway.

It is of paramount importance that all TWGSB students travelling on public transport conduct themselves in a polite and courteous manner at all times, and recognise that they are ambassadors for the school. Any reports of poor behaviour will be dealt with in the same way as any other school behavioural issue, and sanctions issued where necessary.

Lost Property

For lost property en route to or from school, contact the bus or train operator directly. See Kent County Council's Bus Operator Directory for contact information for the bus companies used by TWGSB students. Visit SouthEastern Railway for help with belongings left on a train.

Driving to School

For those parents who drive their child to the Tunbridge Wells site, please do not drive on to site, nor swing around in the entrance, at the beginning or end of the day to drop off/collect your child. We have a number of buses that need to enter and exit the site promptly, and any extra traffic significantly increases the risk of health and safety issues with the students.

There is no parking at either our Sevenoaks or Tunbridge Wells sites, for anyone other than school staff. On-street parking is available in nearby streets but please be mindful of our local residents if waiting for your child after school.

Sixth Form students who drive themselves to school may NOT park in any of the TWGSB car parks (including the TWGSB Sports Centre) and will need to find an alternative space.
