Many pupils travel to and from school on the buses which are shared with other independent schools in the city. Most of these buses load and unload on Baker Street (at Nottingham Girls’ High School). At the end of the day, the buses leave Baker Street at 4.10pm.
Pupils walking to and from Hollygirt and Baker Street are required to walk in groups of two or more. They must cross Mansfield Road using the pedestrian crossing. Pupils may use a free shuttle bus to travel between Hollygirt and Baker Street each afternoon. This departs from Hollygirt after each school day in time to catch alternative buses from Baker Street from 4.10pm onwards. This service is offered as a courtesy and we have no jurisdiction over it. Should it not arrive, pupils walk together between the two schools.
The buses run during the term time of Nottingham High School and are shared with us and Nottingham Girls’ High School. The buses are not the direct responsibility of Hollygirt. A number of companies are involved and methods of payments for fares vary. Any queries about buses organised by Nottingham High School should be made to Ms J Boulton at Nottingham High School on 0115 978 6056 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Changes for 2020-21* Please note that Route 1 and 1a have merged so it is important to note this new route and timetable. Route 10 has been changed slightly to include a stop in Bleasby.
Nottingham High School’s payment system (Wisepay) will be ready to take bus bookings from Monday 20 July 2020.

During the COVID-19 pandemic all passengers over the age of 11 are required to comply with government travel guidance and wear a suitable face covering during the journey to and from school. Children are also expected to sit within their year group where possible and to ensure they wear warm clothing to allow all windows to be open during the journey.
