Papplewick School has listened to the needs of its parents and is eager to meet their requirements. This September their newly extended transport service will begin, meaning Papplewick’s daily London bus services will reach to the Gloucester Road area, near to the Millennium Gloucester Hotel. Based in Ascot, Berkshire, the school offers day, weekly, and full boarding education for around 200 boys between the ages of six and thirteen, achieving strong academic results and feeding into some of the top UK senior schools.
Papplewick has run two very popular daily transport services to and from Chiswick and Brook Green since 2005. This new service will be launched in response to increasing demand from London families who live further slightly further towards the centre of London. Many of these parents are looking for a rural preparatory school which can offer boys more fresh air and more space for sports and other facilities, with an enormous range of extra-curricular activities offered within the school day.
Headmaster Tom Bunbury said: ‘We’ve had a substantial number of enquiries from London parents who are considering an out-of-London school for their sons as day boys from as early as year 2, with boarding – either weekly or full – from age 10 or 11. Our new extended bus service will enable many more London families, and in particular those living in the areas around Chelsea and Belgravia, to take advantage of all we have to offer boys here at Papplewick.’
