School Transport

Roedean Moira House operates a comprehensive bus service with flexible routes covering an approximate 20 mile radius, from as far as Brighton, Heathfield, Battle and Hastings.

Our routes are reviewed annually to accommodate new children starting at the school.

Our regularly maintained fleet of 8 minibuses, with experienced and qualified minibus drivers, provide a reliable service covering all our transport requirements, from the daily school run to afternoon and evening activities, sports fixtures and school trips.
