ENSURING SAFE, AFFORDABLE TRAVEL
LATEST GUIDANCE for students travelling on public transport during the coronavirus pandemic
Many of our students use some form of public transport to get to St Ambrose College.
Responsibility for the school bus services rests with Transport for Greater Manchester TFGM. There are however a number of different bus routes making the College accessible for students living in other areas. We work closely with local transport providers to ensure safe, reliable transport for students.
Staff are on duty to supervise students at the end of the day to ensure they safely board the correct bus. For more information about the different options available, please contact us.
Walking and cycling
We encourage students to walk or cycle when possible. This allows students to gain independence and physical fitness levels are linked to positive health outcomes. We have a secure, covered bike rack at the front of school where students may leave their (locked) bicycles.
For their own protection all students should wear a cycle helmet if they cycle to school.
Travelling by car
If students are brought to school by car, we encourage parents to share when possible. Students should be dropped safely outside the school site.
Please note that parents should not enter the school grounds to drop off their child or use the school gateway as a lay-by.
Train services to Altrincham and Hale are within a walk or bus ride of St Ambrose College. In addition the metro link network provides easy access to Altrincham from many parts of Greater Manchester. Further information is available from TfGM HERE.
School buses are available from local areas and operate on a ‘pay as you go’ basis but students may require an appropriate pass to receive concessionary fares.
More information on bus transport to St Ambrose College is available on the Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) website HERE.
TfGM have released their school bus services timetable and information booklet for the 2020-21 academic year.
