Most of our pupils travel to and from school by bus. If you come on the bus you must have a bus pass. If you don’t have one you will not be allowed on the bus. Arrangements are being made to ensure that you have your bus pass, ready for your first day.
To catch the bus in the morning, you must go to the nearest bus stop. Remember to get there at least 10 minutes before the bus is due, as pick up times can vary due to traffic flow. The bus then picks you up, and others along the route, before dropping you off at school.
The bus will drop you off in the main car park and will pick you up from the same place at the end of the day. Don’t worry about finding the right bus—it’s easy! Each bus has its own number in the front window and your bus number will match the number on your bus pass. There will also be plenty of staff in the car park at the end of the day to help you.
Below are our buses, their numbers, the first stop on their route and the time they leave that stop. Can you find yours?
