From time-to-time there will also be airport transfers and Day Release pick-ups from local schools or train stations.

Morning runs are from Monday to Saturday (the timing of the Saturday run will depend on whether the fixture is home or away).

    The evening run leaves the Training Centre at 6.00pm on a Monday, 5.00pm Tuesday to Thursday, and 3.00pm on a Friday. On Saturday there are four full-time boys who require transport back to their Host Family (the timing will depend on whether the fixture is home or away).
