School buses

Contacting the bus companies

If parents/carers need to contact the bus companies bringing your child to Tuxford, please note that you should do so directly rather than via school.  Perhaps your son or daughter has left something on a bus, or you wish to know whether a service is running during adverse weather conditions, or problems with the bus service, i.e. not turning up, late arriving, cancellation of the service, either telephone the bus company or Nottinghamshire County Council.  Please find the contact details below:
