Please note that the Sunday Coach Service is a shared service with other students running between the airports and Brighton and students may be required to wait at the airport when arriving to or leaving the UK. Transfers will be organised to coincide with the student’s departure time (at least 2 hours before flight departure). Students wishing an earlier coach to arrive must notify the school in advance.

BLC is not liable for any missed flights due to traffic or other issues beyond our control, it is always advisable to arrive as early as possible to ensure no problems.

Students must book their place and provide full flight details 20 days before the course starts at the very latest, or we will not be able to guarantee a space on the coach and a private taxi will be required.

If you are arriving at another airport you will need to use our private taxi service.

Certain airlines have strict rules for students under the age of 16 travelling alone, and may require an adult to be present during the check-in and until the flight has departed. Please check your airline’s requirements when booking your flight. BLC cannot guarantee a staff member to be present unless a check-in service was booked by you.

If you would like our staff to wait at the check-in desk, please tick the box on our Junior Summer Courses application form. There is an additional £62 fee for this service.

Homestay students using the Sunday Coach Service will be accompanied to Brighton by our staff and met by the families.
