Late Bus

The late bus is provided by South Glos Bus & Coach Company and leaves the Academy at 4.15pm from Monday to Thursday during term time (please click here for the route).  Late bus is predominantly for students participating in enrichment activities, revision sessions or after school detention.  The driver will stop at any bus stop along this route, however, the student needs to tell the driver exactly where they wish to disembark as they get on the bus as the route can change dependent on each day's need.  Please note, the stops along the late bus route may be different to your child's normal bus stop so it is really important that they know where they should disembark.

Your child can reserve a space on late bus by visiting Student Reception.

Bus Q&A Information

  • Any students starting at Winterbourne Academy who are eligible for free transport (including the 427 school bus service from Frenchay) will be contacted directly by South Gloucestershire Council prior to their admission in September (usually by mid-June).    If you feel your child may be entitled to free school transport, and you haven't been contacted automatically, please speak to South Gloucestershire Council Student Access and Support Department on 01454 863151
  • When travelling to and from the Academy, please remember you are a member of the Academy and you are expected to behave both sensibly and safely.  The bus companies reserve the right to refuse entry to any students travelling to school on the bus who behave inappropriately.
  • Parent/carers are responsible for making sure that cycles, scooters and cars used to and from the Academy are legally safe. Students should ride in a manner which is safe and keeping with the law. Cycles and scooters should be wheeled through the entrances and kept in the designated bicycle racks and should be secure. Under no circumstances should they be allowed in any part of the Academy building. The Academy will investigate damage to/theft of cycles but they are left at the owner’ risk. To avoid possible damage students should avoid loitering near cycles or any other vehicles.  Motorised scooters are not permitted transport for any student aged 16 and under.
