Sedbergh School is served by two major UK airports with Manchester Airport only 90 minutes away.

Manchester International Airport operates direct flights to and from Europe, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, USA, or by connecting at a European hub (Amsterdam, Paris, Helsinki, Frankfurt or London Heathrow). We can also arrange transfers from Liverpool. During our International Summer School we run additional transfers from Glasgow, Leeds/Bradford and Newcastle Airport.

We have our own fleet of minibuses managed by our transport team. They liaise with houseparents, agents, guardians and parents to ensure all travel plans run smoothly.
