Bus routes to Woodhouse Grove.

Woodhouse Grove operates a Monday - Friday private bus service bringing pupils to and from the school. Buses run from the following locations:
Addingham
Otley
Halifax
Weetwood
Oakwood

Our afternoon bus services leave school at 5.20pm to allow all our pupils to participate in our extensive co-curricular programme.

For pupils travelling on the bus who are not taking part in co-curricular activities, there will be access to our library and ICT suites in order to complete prep or carry out extra academic work. You can view the co-curricular timetable here.

The timings for all morning buses have been planned to ensure that pupils arrive in good time for the school day which commences at 8.35am.  Bus passes can be purchased termly or annually, regardless of whether you are buying a single journey or five return journeys. Purchasing a termly or an annual pass offers savings compared to ad hoc tickets, with an annual pass attracting a further discount (over 5%).  Termly and annual passes are non-refundable, if however your child is in Y11 or Y13 we can discuss reduced rates for exam leave.

Ad hoc tickets are now available through Sports Centre reception for one-off journeys. However, these are space dependent and cannot be guaranteed.

Our buses are either operated by ourselves or Fourway Coaches whose vehicles are fitted with vehicle tracking, seatbelts and drivers are equipped with mobile telephones.

**Please note that facemasks are still required for travel on school buses.

Train Travel and Pupil Passes

With the opening of Apperley Bridge Train Station in December 2015, more and more pupils are travelling to school on the train.  Travelling from Skipton, Bradford, Leeds and now Kirkstall Forge station can be done at ease, and with the Educational Season Rail Pass offering 50% fares for pupils up to 16 years old, this provides a cost effective and fast route to school for pupils who live in proximity to stations along these routes.
