Transport

The Academy has a wide catchment area so a large number of our students travel several miles. The Academy bus operators are Stagecoach Bus Co and First Group Doncaster.

Please find below details of the bus routes and times from catchment locations:

First Bus will release their new timetable approximately 2 weeks before the start of the 2019 Academic year. Please check the First Bus timetables for possible changes to these routes.

Traffic and Car Parking on Site
So that we keep our students safe we have had to place restrictions on traffic on the Academy site. The car park is reserved for Academy staff and visitors / parents / carers who have appointments only. It is out of bounds for all students, including sixth form, who have separate parking facilities at the swimming pool.

The disabled car parking bays are for blue badge holders only.

We ask parents not to drive into the car park at the beginning or end of the Academy day and also at lunch time to pick students up as they will not be able to access this part of the Academy site.

Walking & Cycling to the Academy
We encourage walking or cycling to the Academy. This helps our students to stay active and adopt a healthy lifestyle, and it helps to reduce the traffic at the Academy. The Academy provides covered cycle racks for those students who wish to cycle.
