At Springbank students arrive at school in one of four ways; with family, via the Bay of Islands school buses, the Springbank North Van or by their own car (for Senior students only).

Family Transport

It is very important as a school community we work together to ensure the safety of everyone in the car park.  Our car park can be very busy at the peak times of morning drop offs and after school pickups.  We ask that everyone drives slowly at or blew the 10km limit.  Please take care and stop at the pedestrian crossing, give way to buses and hold your child’s hand in the car park.

School Buses

Students are dropped off and picked up by the bus bay in the school car park.  A duty teacher is present for the after-school buses and will assist all students to board the correct bus.

For up-to-date information on bus timetables and fees, pleas call Clark's Coachlines on (09) 404-0096. For ferry information please visit

Springbank North Van

Springbank currently uses one of our school vans to drive students who live north of Kerikeri, going as far as Coopers Beach to and from school every day.  The van is driven by one of our teachers. Spaces are limited and there is an additional charge for this service.  To find out more details please speak with our office administrator.

Senior Student Drivers

Senior students who wish to travel to school by car must sign a contract and provide parental permission.
