Due to the current pandemic the following guidelines will need to be adhered to whilst travelling on the college-run coaches:

2021-2022 College Coach Arrangements

Please note that college coach access is offered on a first come, first served basis and is subject to seat availability and sufficient sales to ensure the route's viability

Please note: coach drivers will only stop at pick up destinations where students are registered, therefore not all stops will be used. Students need to be waiting at their stop at least 10 minutes before their departure time and make themselves visible to the driver. If the coach is delayed, students can call the coach companies traffic helpline for an estimated time of arrival (please see below for relevant telephone numbers). 

The cost of the college coach:  

The cost of the college-run coach is £920. Payment can be paid in full or in two instalments. To pay in instalments the total cost will be £940 (including a £20 admin fee). A first payment of £525 will need to be paid to secure a space on the coach followed by a payment of £415 due 30 November 2021. 
If you have reserved a space on the coach for September 2021 through making payment and completing the online coach application but decide not to enrol at The Henley College in September 2021, you will receive a full refund. 


2021-22 routes

We strongly advise students arrive at their bus stop at least ten minutes prior to bus departure times in the morning.



Please complete the online college-run coach application form and make payment to secure a space on the college-run coach. Both payment and online application must be made to secure a space on the coach. An e-receipt will then be issued to you at the earliest convenience.
