The service is operated by the School in partnership with a local transport operator. Demand for places can be high and preference may have to be given to the younger and longer distance travellers.
We are always happy to consider running new coach routes if there is sufficient demand from a particular area so please do contact us if we do not currently stop near your home.
In recent years we have introduced new routes and pick-ups from Winwick, Penwortham, the Ribble Valley (Bluebell Way near the Norman Jepson Beefeater pub and Junction 31a of the M6), Blackburn (Ewood Park) and Lostock Station (Regent Rd/Rumworth Rd) which is near to the School in Bolton. This makes the School accessible by train from Blackpool, Kirkham and Preston as well as from Salford and Manchester.
Currently almost half of our pupils, including some from our Infant and Junior Schools, utilise our transport service and the school day is organised so that pupils travelling into school can take full advantage of our extra-curricular provision.
