School and College Trips

Organising a school trip can often be challenging. If you are hiring a coach that will be carrying students or children, it is essential to ensure that it is safe and reliable. It also needs to be comfortable, and of course affordable. That is why Wight Coaches is the top choice of so many schools and educational establishments.

Wight Coaches offer coaches for school transfers, such as taking pupils on a regular basis for games, swimming lessons, or visits to other schools for football, cricket, netball and other sports fixtures.

Our services include providing educational coach hire for longer trips, such as a school’s visit to cities such as London, or for end of term ‘fun’ trips to theme parks.
We particularly specialise in extended school, college coach hire. This may be tours within the UK as well as schools doing a residential trip to the Isle of Wight.

With one of the largest fleets of coaches serving the Isle of Wight, we can cater to many group sizes with a fleet of coaches which can carry from 49 to 61 passengers. All of our vehicles feature Air Conditioning and our 49-53 seat coaches also have toilets and reclining seats.

All our drivers are fully DBS checked, well trained and regularly assessed. This is so we can offer you a reliable and safe service, so that parents, teachers, governors and students alike can have peace of mind.

All our coaches have telematics technology and most have CCTV. By doing so, it enables us to provide customers with up to the minute information on where vehicles are and whether pick up and drop offs have been made on time. It gives our operations centre the ability to re-route coaches if there are traffic delays on a planned route. It also provides us with information on how the vehicle is being driven, such as any harsh acceleration, braking or cornering which can be used to improve our driver training.
