It’s sometimes hard to believe that our 100-acre oasis of calm sits within the M25.

Claremont Fan Court School’s location is a real blessing – offering quick, convenient access to many different areas in London and Surrey.


The school offers an extensive network of school coaches to pupils from Year 3 and above, travelling daily from areas of Surrey and South West London. Coaches are provided exclusively for the use of our pupils, offering a safe and convenient way of travelling between home and school.

We have partnered with Vectare, a specialist school transport company, to run this service. A dedicated online booking system and personalised journey planning portal is available to parents, visit for further information and booking arrangements.

Our vast network of buses cover the following areas, plus many more:

  • Ashtead
  • Chessington
  • Claygate
  • Cobham
  • Earlsfield
  • Epsom
  • Ewell
  • Hampton
  • Horsley

  • Mortlake
  • Putney
  • Richmond
  • Ripley
  • Teddington
  • Twickenham
  • Walton-on-Thames
  • Weybridge
  • Wimbledon
  • Woking


We recognise co-curricular activities (sports practice, drama rehearsals, etc..)  can take place after school hours, which is why we have introduced a late bus service. Our late bus departs from the school at 17:45pm and stops at Claygate Railway Station and Surbiton Station.
