  • Just a little message to say a HUGE thank you for the lovely two drivers who took us to Littlehampton Beach. Our teachers said that they were both so lovely and really went above and beyond. Office Manager of local primary school, Chichester
  • Please could you pass my thanks on to J in your transport department, and the coach driver who came to rescue our children from the car park at Goodwood on Tuesday. I was very grateful for the time J took trying to problem solve and the solution he found. Fortunately, the 55-seater replacement coach arrived just minutes after the Woods driver came (who very kindly shared his jaffa cake biscuits!). Many thanks again. SN, Deputy Head Teacher of local Infant School, Worthing
  • Our Headteacher would like to send a special thank you to the Coach drivers who took us to the O2 Arena on Thursday 18th January. She said.... They were friendly, kind and accommodating - such a pleasant journey with them! They ensured the journey was direct and took the best routes - no winding roads or extended routes! They most definitely made the day run so smoothly for our staff and a special day full of lovely memories was had by us all. TT of Local Junior School, Emsworth, Hants
  • Your lovely driver M drove myself and my class from the Primary School to Fishers Farm today. All the adults on-board the coach commented to me what a lovely professional coach driver he was. He was friendly, professional, personable and great with the children! Thank you for a great service! VL, Class Teacher of a Primary School, Arundel, West Sussex
  • Thank you so much for helping us on our visit to Hampton Court Palace yesterday. I really enjoyed seeing where Henry VIII lived with his wives 500 years ago. I learned he chopped off hands when you dropped your sword. My group saw the amazing patterned gardens that were zigzagging the grounds. The gardeners done a great job! Learning about Hampton Court was an exciting part of Tudor topic at school and we had a great day out. Thanks again because it would not have been possible without your help. RB, pupil at local primary school, Rustington, West Sussex
  • I would like to thank Woods once again for providing us with such an excellent transport service for our school journey to Bournemouth. G. & K. are highly competent drivers - I don't know how they reverse the coaches into the hotel car park - but they do! They are also incredibly friendly, helpful and dependable and contribute to the overall success of the trip, please pass on my thanks. I would like to give a special mention to G. who has driven us every year for the past 9 years; we have become very attached to him, he is a fantastic driver, we love his sense of humour and our trip wouldn't be the same without him. He is a tremendous asset to the company, thank you G.! We would like to book our school journey with Woods next year requesting G. and K. as our drivers. Many thanks again to everyone at Woods. Deputy Headteacher, London Primary School

  • Further to our telephone conversation this morning I would like to put in writing our thanks and appreciation for your Driver, G, who took our year 6 pupils to London to see "Wicked". Our Head of Year 6 was so impressed with his knowledge and his attitude towards the children and staff, she wanted me to pass on her thanks and she has said that if we go on another trip she will be putting in a request for G to be our driver, as he made the journey fun and interesting for all the staff and pupils. CW, from a School in Worthing, West Sussex
  • I am writing to say a huge thank you to G and C our coach drivers on our school journey. Without their fantastic transportation, the week could not have gone on. All our journeys were smooth and fun due to their generous agreement to let the teachers use the microphone on board the coach for announcement and songs and their toleration of our (sometimes) almost deafening chat. Thanks to them our journeys were safe and enjoyable. We hope the future Year Sixes are treated to this amazing coach service. A Year 6 Student from a Primary School, London
  • I just wanted to write to tell you how well your driver, R, handled the adverse weather conditions on our return journey from the O2 yesterday. It was not an easy journey back through the snow but he got the children back safe and sound. The teachers appreciated his help on the return to school while waiting for parents to collect as it was freezing! WT, Secretary of Local Primary School, Bognor Regis
  • I would like to thank Woods once again for providing us with such an excellent transport service for our school journey to Bournemouth. G and R are highly competent drivers; they are also friendly, helpful and dependable and contributed to the overall success of the trip.

  • I just wanted to say how wonderful G was! The staff and children cannot speak highly enough to him. Very kind and calming and seemed to generally enjoy being on the trip, our number one! Can I also pencil you in for next year (with G would be great!) Best wishes S.H of a London School
  • I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for saving the day today for our school! There was a misunderstanding on our part with regards to a booking which then left us without a coach to take us to the Arundel Wetlands Centre today. The day could have been a complete disaster but you were very quick to respond and got a coach to us in a few minutes. This really saved the day and we cannot thank you enough. The driver was polite and professional and the driver who collected us from the Wetlands at the end of the day was very nice and friendly. You really did save the day! Please pass on my thanks to the team and the drivers who stepped in to help today. We really appreciate it and cannot thank you enough. AM, Teacher at local primary school, Littlehampton, W Sussex

  • You took our Year 5 children to the Science Centre in Winchester. On their return to school the class teacher asked me to let you know how excellent their driver T had been.

  • For the last 10 years Woods have been taking us on our school journey to Bournemouth, and your driver, G, has driven us every single year - what a feat! I would like to thank Woods once again for providing us with such an excellent service. Your driver knows our schedule very well and, as party leader, it is incredibly reassuring to have someone so friendly, helpful and dependable - it really facilitates the organisation and smooth running of the trip. We would like to book our school journey with Woods again next year. Many thanks again to everyone at Woods. SB, Deputy Head Teacher of London Primary School
  • I just wanted to check in to let you know that we had an absolutely brilliant experience on Friday. G was the perfect driver for a really complicated schedule of pick-ups and drop-offs and he was cheerful and pleasant throughout the day. It was a real pleasure working with Woods Travel - you've been so accommodating to our needs and our overall experience of the company has been excellent. We'll definitely aim to book through you again in the future and will recommend you to colleagues! Organiser for Local University Group, East Sussex
  • First of all can I say a huge thank you to P and S for all they did for us during the week. Their professionalism is outstanding and they became part of the team for the week. They were quick to react to the problems at Calais and the impending strike which meant we had to cut short the sea life centre but enabled us to get the children home without worry. P sorted out problems with the restaurant in Paris where they were going to charge us more. Some drivers would just take a back seat and not get involved so a big thank you to P. Both drivers are extremely careful smooth drivers which meant we had no travel sickness at all. Thanks guys. LE of a Local Middle School, Worthing, West Sussex
