About us

We are Wouldham All Saints CEP School, in a rural setting just outside Rochester in Kent.

What do we want?

We make use of minibuses to access wider learning such as Forest School, swimming, trips out, library visits and much more. Sadly, we need to replace an ageing vehicle after many years of faithful service to enable us to continue our wide range of experiences.

Who is this for?

This will be used by the whole school, which includes Nexus Foundation Special School who have a growing number of children based with us. It will also include use by other local schools and community groups.

Why do we want it?

By running our own transport we can provide additional learning experiences at much lower cost than if we needed to hire in other buses or coaches. This means we can provide many activities for free or at the lowest possible cost. 


A minibus can cost anything from a few thousand to many tens of thousand. We’re not after the top spec supercharged model but the newer the model, the greater the time it will be able to serve. A few additional costs are also needed to get it into action....

Vehicle purchase - £2,000 (we have managed to raise some funds already to put with this)

Sign writing - £600

Tachograph - £400

Total = £3,000


If we're fortunate enough to raise more than our target, then we would also like to buy a slightly newer model and have a tow bar fitted.
