Education & Schools, Coach Hire

Organising a school trip can often be challenging. If you are hiring a coach that will be carrying students or children, it is vital to ensure that it is safe and reliable. It also needs to be comfortable, and of course affordable.

That is why Bakers Dolphin, a long standing and trusted coach company, is the top choice of so many schools and educational establishments. We’ve been transporting children safely and reliably for over 60 years, and we’ve never compromised on safety. All our coaches have telematics and most have CCTV installed. We safety check our vehicles every day and provide a 24-hour emergency contact service which provides peace of mind for Governors, teachers and Parents alike.

Bakers Dolphin offer coaches for school transfers, such as taking pupils on a regular basis for games 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 and university coach hire. This may be tours within the UK as well as on the Continent.

If you would like more information or would like a quote for our educational and school coach hire services, do not hesitate to give us a call. We have friendly and trustworthy staff on board so that you can gather the details necessary to you organising and booking a flawless educational school trip or day out for the children.
