Transport to and from the School is an important issue for our parents and pupils, a number of which live more than 5km away. The School has taken a proactive approach in this area; we are committed to providing sustainable travel and offering parents and pupils a range of transport options
The following bus and coach services are the private services provided for the School by our transport partners. These buses only carry school children and are not available to members of the public.
The Bullocks141/241 and 158 services are private bus services which travel to and from areas in south Manchester. These include: Bowdon, Altrincham, Hale, Hale Barns, Cheadle, Bramhall, Gatley and Cheadle Hulme. There are also public services provided by other operators which pass the end of Grangethorpe Road.
A number of our students travel from Bolton, Oldham, Ashton-under-Lyne and Glossop on the train to Manchester Piccadilly, Victoria and Oxford Road stations, where they are able to transfer either to a public bus serving Wilmslow Road or our City Centre Shuttle bus.
All services shown below are private coach services. Details may change from time to time, therefore we always advise confirming times and routes with the individual bus operator.
Many girls also use public transport to get to school. There are excellent public transport links that stop right outside our School on Wilmslow Rd.
To explore public transport options, please visit the Transport for Greater Manchester website for route information and details of concessionary fares.

Travel Case Study
My name is Abigail and I am in Year 8. I live in Glossop which is quite a distance from School. In the car, it takes about an hour to get to school every day, but I have recently started getting the shuttle bus, which cuts about 15 minutes off my journey and about 45 minutes off my mum’s!
In the morning, I get the 7.23am train to Piccadilly station with three other girls and then at around 8.20am, I get on the shuttle bus. The bus usually arrives at school for approximately 8.40am so I have plenty of time to get all my books and things ready for the busy school day.
After school, I get the bus at 3.55pm and then the Glossop train at 4.35pm, arriving at the station for about 5.05pm.
