Bus Routes 2024
Bus Routes
Our school buses are run solely for Derby High pupils and use a home to school transport service app, with the innovative Kura technology. 

The Kura app allows you to track your child(ren)’s individual school routes, arrivals and departures, and view boarding and alighting updates in one place. If a child doesn’t board, or if they alight at an unexpected stop, the parent, the school, and the Kura teams will know about it. Parents can cancel and book journeys in the app, giving them full control of their child’s travel schedule.

The App offers real-time, accurate updates including traffic status, potential hazards, and delays, directly to your phone. Offering you peace of mind, the service is time-efficient and tailored to you. The technology powers the most advanced school runs in the UK, integrating tracking and communication for drivers, parents, and school staff. Your children swipe on and off with their own tag and the technology automatically notifies you in real-time.

If you would like to make a booking for the school bus, please contact and ask for a Kura app invite.  Once you have received the invite you will be able to register and make your booking as required.

The bus routes currently operating to and from the school are detailed on this page. If there is demand for bus routes serving communities not currently on the timetable we will consider implementing them.  Please let our Registrar know if this is the case:

Their passionate chefs work closely with us to ensure every child receives a nutritionally balanced meal at school, perfectly suited to meet their needs and dietary requirements. Every dish helps to set our pupils up for academic success and inspire positive behaviours, while providing great nutrition for a healthy body and mind.  

We know how important it is to help our pupils develop a relationship with food that’s good for them and good for our planet. Chartwells Independent dedicates time and resources to education surrounding mental and physical wellbeing, including nutrition and food habits, to encourage our pupils to engage with, learn, and enjoy food while developing crucial social skills.
