Caring Brings Success

School Transport

School Transport

Transport is provided by the Education Authority (Transport Section) and there is a fleet of nine buses allocated to serve Clifton School. These buses cover the Ards and North Down area and are fitted with specialist equipment to ensure that all children using the service are transported safely and comfortably. Also, a bus Escort is present on each bus, tasked to assist with the safe transportation of the Children. Furthermore, if and when necessary additional transport is provided to the school in order to assist with educational outings.


Should any issues arise please contact Transport at the Education Authority.
