There are strict school rules and curfew times in place and students must not go out alone.

Travel to/from school and activities is usually on public buses (a bus pass is included). Again – students must not travel on buses alone.

Airport transfers for individuals
(London Heathrow Airport)

Each Sunday during the course, there will be a Riviera English School leader at Heathrow Airport to meet and travel with the arriving/departing students. The leader will meet students at arrivals with a name board and help with the check-in on departure. This is referred to as an “accompanied transfer”

Earliest flight arrival: 11.00 Latest flight arrival: 15.30 (Our leader will be at Heathrow from 11.00, so any students on flights arriving before this time would have to wait alone).

Earliest flight departure: 12.30 Latest flight departure: 17.00 (Our leader will be at Heathrow until 16.30, so for later flights, students would have to wait alone).

The total cost (including travel costs) for an accompanied transfer is as follows:

£65 each way (Heathrow-Torquay or Torquay-Heathrow), £130 both ways

For flights arriving earlier or later than times shown above, or for transfer information for arrivals/departures from airports other than Heathrow, please contact the school.
