On every bus there is a bus matron whose main duty is to look after the pupils on the bus. Pupils are expected to treat matrons, as with all adults at the College, with the utmost of respect at all times. The matrons are trained in emergency procedures and have received First Aid courses from the Egyptian Red Crescent. Matrons are also trained to maintain discipline and order on the bus. Bus drivers and bus matrons have all been trained to provide a smooth and safe process for those on the bus.
If parents have a complaint about the buses, they will be able to contact the bus matrons. If the bus matrons would like to report an issue regarding a pupil, the bus matron will file an incident report to the respective Head of Stage, which will then be investigated and circulated to the respective parents if deemed necessary.
How to Apply
Parents may apply for the bus service by contacting the transportation department through the following methods:
School number: 02-26144400
Email: [email protected]
Please make sure to provide your detailed address listed, your name, and the pupils’ name, year and student ID code.
If your child has lost something, please contact Reception or check the Lost & Found office in the College.
We will endeavor to keep you informed of any transport problems. If there are significant delays in transport or in cases of emergencies, parents will be contacted by one or more of two methods: SMS Messaging System through your mobile telephones and/or personal contact via phone-call. Parents will be able to communicate with the matrons of the bus via telephone on a day-to-day basis for any needs that may arise.
Parents who would like to collect their children before the dismissal times are kindly requested to make a request through the Parent Portal or by sending an email to [email protected] at least 24 hours prior to the change. If your child is not feeling well during the school day, the College doctor will request an early leave and contact the parent to arrange an early pick up.
If you need to change the address for your child to be picked up and dropped off, please notify our transportation department at the earliest availability. The deadline for this is at least 1 week before the change in address, in order to ensure we have enough time to check route and bus availability. Please note that we cannot accept one-off changes as all routes are carefully planned in advance.
Bus fees that have already been paid are non-refundable, even if your child has not begun to use the bus service.
