Arrival Protocol

BLC International provide coach transfers at the times below for students arriving and departing from Heathrow or Gatwick Airport on Sundays (please check the website for updates).

A BLC International representative will wait for students in the arrivals hall at the airport. Once the BLCI representative collects students from the arrivals area, they are taken to a coach that is ready to go to our main school in Brighton.

Upon arrival at the school, all Junior Vacation students receive a weekly Brighton bus pass, and will then be collected by their host to complete the arrival to their new home.

Please note that the students share the Sunday Coach Service with other students running between the airports and Brighton. Students may be required to wait at the airport for up to a maximum of 4 hours* both when arriving to or leaving the UK. On departure, the Sunday Coach Service will arrive at the airport no later than 2 hours before the flight departs.

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.

Sunday Coach Service Price



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 £50 fee for this service.

Locating BLC staff at the airport

Arriving students using the Sunday Coach Service can locate BLC staff at the airports in purple BLC shirts and will be accompanied to Brighton and met by the host families at the school. Please see contact details below:

Gatwick staff phone number/ whatsapp: +44 (0) 742 526 9182 / Email

Heathrow staff phone number / whatsapp: +44 (0) 742 526 9357 / Email

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

Transfers are organised to coincide with student’s departure time (2 hours before flight departure). Students wishing to leave on an earlier coach must notify the school in advance. BLC International is not liable for any missed flights. It is advisable to arrive as early as possible at the airport. Students leaving on late flights are welcome to take the last coach to the airport with the expectation of a longer waiting time.
