School Bus Services Update

TFGM has confirmed the following school buses ONLY will run from Monday 30th March
  •  650 Vision Bus Ltd - Hindley Green - School
  •  Y27 Olympia will continue to operate.  However, the afternoon Y27 will be retimed to depart later at 1515 to cater for both schools. 
  • Pupils from St Edmund Arrowsmith and Byrchall will be able to use both services 

Due to the wide catchment area, the school relies heavily on dedicated services to and from the site. We work closely with Transport for Manchester (TFM) and Merseytravel. This academic year, 2019-2020 we utilise the following services.
