Sussex Coaches have announced that they will offer an improved and direct bus service between Haywards Heath and Cuckfield to Horsham’s outstanding College of Richard Collyer (Collyer’s).

From September, the buses will run to Collyer’s first thing in the morning and return in the afternoon, following the college day.

Collyer’s have announced that for new students using this route, they will even pay for their “3 in 1” cards!

Collyer’s Principal, Dr Jackie Johnston, said: “I am delighted that Sussex Coaches have been able to offer this much improved bus service.

“We have more and more students attending Collyer’s from this area and it is great that Sussex Coaches have been able to respond to popular demand.”

With a superb reputation across the south of England, Collyer’s has continued to build on their success and boasts cutting edge facilities across an extremely broad range of subject areas.

This year the college has again achieved record breaking exam results, significantly bucking the national trend.

Students have excelled with an A2 pass rate at 99%, with an incredible 61% achieving grades at A*/B, the college’s best ever performance!

Dr Jackie Johnston added: “We have been thrilled to celebrate yet another record-breaking year of outstanding success across our broad range of subjects.

“I’m incredibly proud of our students, parents and staff as the success reflects their hard work over the course of another hugely successful year. It’s no surprise that we are now attracting students from right across the region and internationally!”

Founded in 1532, The College of Richard Collyer is a sixth form college with approximately 1,600 full-time 16-18 students.

As a top performing institution, Collyer’s has Beacon status and enjoys an “Outstanding” rating from Ofsted. For application details please visit the college website at or call 01483 210 822.
