A teenage girl has died after being hit by a bus outside a school on the NSW South Coast.

Emergency services were called to South Street in Ulladulla about 3pm on Wednesday after the teenager was struck outside Ulladulla High School.

The girl, who is a student of the school, died at the scene.

The bus driver was breath tested at the scene and returned a negative result, police said.
