John Dix School Bus Year 7 2020/2021 letter to parents

Dear Parents / Carers,

I am writing to make contact with all parents and carers of those children moving up to Year 7 in September.  We provide home to school transport to and from The Crypt, Ribston Hall and St Peter’s High School.  Registration for our services has been open for some time, but given the current ongoing situation, we haven’t been able to promote them to parents as efficiently as we would have liked.

If your child will be attending one of these schools in September, we may have a service which is of use to you.  We run services from Cheltenham, Churchdown, Innsworth, Longlevens, Kingsholm, Gloucester City Centre, Brockworth, Hucclecote, Abbeymead, Abbeydale, Matson, Robinswood, Quedgeley, Kingsway, Frampton and Arlingham to all three of these schools.  If you are yet to make arrangements for your child’s home to school transport, please have a look at our website and see if there is a suitable route for you.

To do so, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to
  2. Select ‘School Routes’
  3. Select the relevant school.  The routes we operate to that school will be displayed along with timetables.

If you would like to sign up to one of these routes, please continue as below:

  • Click on the green button showing available places.
  • Complete the form that is generated (you may need to scroll down to view it)
  • You will be required to agree to our terms and conditions by ticking the appropriate boxes.  Please read them carefully.
  • You will need to submit your bank details for payments that are processed via Go Cardless.
  • A confirmation email will follow.

We will keep in touch as we approach the start of the 2020-21 term.

It is very important that you supply mobile numbers for yourselves and if possible your children.  We operate a text notification system where we communicate any delays due to bad weather, traffic, accidents, breakdowns etc.  We will send messages out to both parents/carers and pupils so you are all aware of what is happening.  It is rare for there to be significant delays, but when something does happen we like to communicate it quickly.  Unless we tell you otherwise, children should continue to wait for the bus.

It would also help if you could follow us on social media, as this is a quick and easy way for us to communicate with large numbers of parents/carers.  Our Facebook profile is @JohnDixTravel and our twitter handle is @JohnDixTravel

If you have any questions, please email and we will do our best to help.

Kind Regards,

John Dix
