Swallow Coach Company

Forest’s Home to School Bus Service is provided by the Swallow Coach Company. Established in 1947, the Swallow Coach Company is a family-run business based in Rainham, Essex.

Swallow Coaches stand out for the additional services they provide, which include:

GPS tracking

All Swallow coaches can be tracked using GPS technology. This means that parents, pupils and Forest staff can track the exact location of every coach using an internet-enabled device.

The Crouch End route

The Swallow Coach Company has run a service to Crouch End since September 2015. The route includes stops in Highgate, Muswell Hill, Hornsey and Archway.

Request a stop

Parents are invited to contact the school to request a stop if an additional one is required. It may be that you live in an area where the existing routes do not conveniently pass, or that the nearest listed stop is too far away for your child to walk to every morning.

The school will consider all requests but cannot guarantee that stops will be added. We try to respond to all requests within five working days.
