Regular ad hoc loan of minibus

Partner: The Queen Anne Royal Free CofE Controlled First School, Windsor
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: Sporting Partnerships

The Queen Anne First School do not have access to a minibus so, from time to time, in order to take their pupils to sporting fixtures and other offsite activities, they borrow one of our minibuses free of charge.

Aims of the project

To assist a local school with their need for occasional transport. The beneficiaries are Queen Anne School staff and pupils.

Background and goals

The Queen Anne School office contacted Upton House to ask if we had a minibus and if it would be possible for them to borrow it for a specific event in early June 2016.  Since then they have contacted us on many occasions and, when our vehicle(s) are available, we always offer to lend it.  There have only been two occasions so far when we have been unable to assist as the minibuses were in use.


Upton House School minibuses (one 17 seat and one 9 seat) are lent for 2-3 hours at a time, typically.  There is no charge to The Queen Anne Royal Free First School.


No assessment required.

Pupil involvement

Pupils from the Queen Anne Royal Free First School are aged between 5 and 9 years of age.

Frequency and duration

We anticipate that this arrangement will continue on an ad hoc basis for as long as The Queen Anne Royal Free First School wish it to.
