King’s College provides a transfer service to and from Heathrow Airport at the start and end of every term and all half term breaks.
The journey time from Heathrow is around three hours and pupils are accompanied on the coach by a member of staff. If flight timings do not fit, King’s College staff can help pupils arrange taxis and assist with rail transfers instead. The cost of school transport is divided between the pupils travelling (typically £40/£45 per pupil for coach travel) and is added to their end of term invoice.
For more information, please download the transfer schedule below. Changes to the schedule are rare and parents will be given as much notice as possible of any changes or amendments.
If transport is required, parents/guardians are asked to complete the Travel Request Form and return by email to Travel@kings-taunton.co.uk at least two weeks in advance of the day of travel.

For taxi transfers the school uses a reputable taxi firm called A1 Taxis. Transfers can be arranged through school by contactingTravel@kings-taunton.co.uk Pupils should ring the taxi company on 01823 332211 when they are leaving the airport and the taxi driver will drive round to meet them in front of the airport. If the pupil cannot find the driver they should ring the same A1 number and contact their Houseparent to let them know. Please be aware that any taxi transfers arranged through school will still be charged to the school bill in the event of the pupil no longer taking the transfer, unless sufficient notice of cancellation is given.
