Victoria Escort service
Weekly escorted travel, to and from London
The Victoria Escort (VE) service is used by Weekly and Flexi boarders to travel to and from London. It has been running for many years and has become increasingly popular with our London boarders – Year 7, 8 and 9 pupils are prioritised, but it is open to all.
Please be reassured that girls are accompanied by at least two members of staff on all journeys.
On Fridays, the VE departs after school and the students travel by taxi to Brighton station and by train to London Victoria Train Station, arriving at approximately 6:00pm.
On Sundays, we meet at the Victoria Coach Station departures area (the designated ‘Lane’ will be displayed on the electronic notice boards at 4:30pm), then we board and leave by 4:55pm. The girls arrive back at school by 7:00pm, which allows time to have supper and unpack before their weekly House meeting at 8:00pm with their Housemistress.
This service enables girls to spend weekends and Exeats with their parents/guardians, and for end/start of term travel. The cost per trip from September 2023 will be £41. Costs will be added to your school bill each term.

“The Victoria Escort is quite a quick journey on the train. I usually take my laptop with me and maybe watch a movie, or I complete some prep to free up the weekend. I normally take snacks with me left over from the week, but the chaperones always have a stash of Kit-Kats! There are normally two chaperones, and everyone is really nice.”
