Pupils and students can travel to and from QEGS on one of the school bus routes provided in conjunction with Preston-based bus company, Andrew Wright Group. Please email Andrew Wright on with the subject “QEGS Service”, advising where you wish your child to be picked up from. Andrew Wright will then contact you directly. A fee is payable for this service.

There are currently 4 separate routes serving many parts of Lancashire. Each year these routes are reviewed and, where it is operationally feasible, changes are made in light of requests for use of the service.
