Travel Details

Travelling to School

The majority of our students travel to and from school on bus services from various parts of Cheshire West and Cheshire East, with a smaller number travelling by train. The menu on the right provides information about these services including timetables and current fares.

The school expects the highest standards of behaviour from students as they travel to and from school. They are greeted by senior staff as they arrive on the premises and their departure from school is supervised by a team of duty staff each day.
