Important Notice

Bus services to and from Wakefield Grammar School Foundation are operated by specific companies on behalf of parents. The Foundation is not directly involved with these services. Payment for school bus fares should be made directly to the bus companies unless otherwise notified.

Pick up and journey times may be subject to change, and are at the discretion of the bus companies.

All return routes are in reverse (unless stated otherwise) departing at 4.15pm. The pick-up point for the home journey will be confirmed to parents and pupils by the bus companies.

When after school commitments prevent a pupil from catching a school bus, it is the responsibility of parents to make alternative arrangements.

Pupil Behaviour on School Buses

Pupils using a school bus are expected to behave appropriately at all times, displaying respect and courtesy towards the bus driver and other pupils. All buses are fitted with seat belts which must be worn at all times when the bus is moving. In the event of misbehaviour, the bus companies have the right to contact the parents of the individual(s) concerned and the Deputy Head of their school.
