Commercial bus services

The Rosso 469 bus service is only a 20 minute walk from the school via Walshaw Road and connects with Bury, Walshaw and Tottington. Services run every 10 minutes.

Duplicate bus services

Capacity on the commercial bus network continues to be significantly reduced due to coronavirus social distancing measures.

TfGM are working with operators to run around 300 additional bus journeys each weekday across the region to help students using public transport get to and from school and college safely.

Duplicate bus journeys exclusively for school and college students run behind the original scheduled service at set times, with the usual route number starting in ‘S’ to show they are school services.

The nearest stop is Bury, a 30-minute walk away from the school. Trams on the Bury line run every 10 minutes. Check the next tram time here


Emergency closure

There is a road closure in place on Angouleme Way between Manchester Road and Knowsley Street for emergency utility works which may delay your journey to and from school.

The closure is in both directions and is expected to be in place when schools return on Monday 8 March.

The road is expected to remain closed in both directions for 2-3 weeks and a diversion will be in place directing traffic around Jubilee Way, Peel Way, Derby Way and Rochdale Road.

Cycling and Walking

The schools are only a 30-minute walk from Bury town centre (even quicker on bike). Save money and even time by walking/cycling to school.
