Many of our international students fly into London Heathrow where they can either be picked up by minibus, take the train to Truro or board a 45 minute flight at London Gatwick to Cornwall.
Pick-ups from London Heathrow
The school runs a minibus service at the beginning and end of each term and often in half terms too. This is the most popular method of travel for younger boarders as it is a straightforward option, accompanied by adults, and takes girls from the door of their boarding house all the way to check in.
Girls making use of the school minibus service are asked to arrive at London Heathrow on a flight landing between 5.00-8.00am, and depart at the end of term on a flight between 17.00-20.00pm. Parents are strongly encouraged to contact House staff before booking flights, so the times and dates can be confirmed before any money is paid out.
Flying to Cornwall
Just a quick 45 minute flight and you’re in Cornwall. Year-round daily flights from London to Cornwall with airport pick-ups on request.
Train from London Paddington to Truro
Some students may choose to take the train from London Paddington to Truro. Hourly day-time services are available. There is also a train which connects from London Heathrow for international students.
Supper in SW1 – Weekly boarding
Students living in the Greater London area may choose to board with us on a weekly basis and, with just a short flight from Newquay or train journey from Truro, can be home in time for Friday night supper in SW1.
