Getting to School

With all of the options below, we discourage parents from driving students to school. If this is essential, there is a pick up/drop off point opposite the school gate which we ask parents to use sensibly and with consideration for students and other parents. Under no circumstances should parents park on Branston Road on the approach to the school.

We encourage the use of walking and cycling, as the main mode of transport, as much as possible. Where students can, they should walk or cycle to school. We have large bike racks where students can store their bikes during the day. If they are cycling to school, the bike must be roadworthy, with lights and a cycle helmet must be worn.

Where walking or cycling is not an option, Diamond Buses provide home to school transport for our students.

From 13th November 2023, we have two through services; 831 from Hilton and 10 from Acorn Inn, both going via Burton New Street. There is also a 10S route from the Acorn Inn / Henhurst Ridge / Wellington Street areas direct to school (not via Burton centre) for holders of a Staffordshire County Council issued bus pass. Full details of timings etc can be found on the Diamond Service Guide.

For students living in Elford, Streethay and Fradley we are providing a bespoke service with transport company Kura. If you have not already signed up for this service but would like information on how to apply for a space, please email the Transport Team on to register your interest and check availability.
