Commercial bus services

From the north (Manchester City Centre/Moss Side) and the south (Withington/Northenden/Wythenshawe) of the school, pupils should board the 101/102/103 services which operate along A5103 Princess Road frequently. These services stop within a couple of minutes’ walk of the schools.
Pupils from the east (Fallowfield) and west (Chorlton/Stretford), should board the 150 service.

If travelling from the Chorlton and Whalley Range area the 85 bus runs every 10 minutes – Alight at Alexandra Road and walk the short distance to the school.

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 Withington, a 10-15 minute walk away from the school. Trams on the East Didsbury to Rochdale line run every 10 minutes. Students should arrive 10 minutes earlier than usual to board a service. Check the next tram time here.
