We think our school is one of the most accessible in the Midlands. This Transport page is designed to let you find the quickest, cheapest and most convenient way to get to our school.
We are excited to have recently launched new routes and a new pricing structure starting from September 2016. All the information regarding transport options to and from King Henry VIII School for 2017 can be found in our Transport Booklet below.

We are proud of the fact that so many of our pupils walk, cycle or use public transport to get to and from school each day. This is great for developing a sense of independence and responsibility, it is healthy and, of course, it is better for the environment too.
Park and Ride - this is a free service!
In order to help reduce congestion and journey time to school we are currently running a new Park and Ride service from the Tollgate car park on Holyhead Road.
Minibus arrives at the Tollgate car park: 0735
Minibus departs the Tollgate car park: 0750
This is a free service. Pupils must be booked on to this service with the Transport Manager in advance.
This bus service is invaluable to us. We both work in Birmingham and the convenience of not having to get stuck in traffic travelling down the Holyhead Road is huge. It can save us up to 45 minutes a day. More importantly it is a safe service for our two Prep School children, with the same driver and same other children. We can't believe it is not used more!
We find it an excellent service, cost effective and time saving; not having to drive into the city centre saves at least 20 minutes every morning. It's also very reliable, always the same friendly driver and an easy drop off with plenty of space to turn round.
For those parents who come to school by car, we politely ask you to respect the parking restrictions in local roads, to be aware of other road users and pedestrians, and not to drive onto the playground between 8am and 6pm.
Transport queries should be addressed to the Coventry School Foundation Transport Manager, Mrs Catherine Gittens.
