Dragon pupils come from near and far and we aim to do all we can to support families with their journeys to and from School. We are committed to promoting green and sustainable transport methods throughout our community wherever possible.

Local Dragon children are encouraged to walk to school and, given the popularity of cycling in Oxford, many pupils and parents come on their bikes. Both the Pre-Prep and Prep school have areas where bicycles can be stored safely.

For those with children at both sites, there is a Dragon shuttle bus which runs from the Lodge each morning and takes younger siblings to the Pre-Prep.

Dragon Bus from London

We have introduced a Sunday evening bus service which leaves from Kensington and serves London-based boarders who have gone home for the weekend. In addition, there is an Exeat bus that runs from Oxford to London on the Friday afternoon of Exeats and half-terms.

Oxford Schools Bus Partnership

Dragon School is part of the Oxford Schools Bus Partnership, established in 2017 to ensure reliable and safe transport to independent schools in Oxford from a wide area across the county and beyond.

The partnership consists of Dragon School, d’Overbroeck’s, Headington School, Magdalen College School, Oxford High School, Rye St Antony and Wychwood and works collaboratively to achieve the best transport solution for their pupils. Young Dragons are safely escorted to and from the buses at Bardwell Road and each bus has a live tracking service so that parents can monitor progress against the timetable.
