Easy access from across the region.

Set in 70 acres of beautiful Yorkshire Countryside, yet conveniently located between Leeds and Bradford, our students benefit from our rural location with the advantage of having major cities on their doorstep.

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:

A parent transport survey in 2018 led to a full review of our bus routes, timings and prices to ensure we are offering the best service possible to pupils and parents. 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.

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 this provides a cost effective and fast route to school for pupils who live in proximity to stations along these routes.  For information on all train times please visit


The school is serviced by the Airedale and Leeds-Bradford Line and is easily accessible from the Wharfedale Line with a change at Shipley station. If you would like to apply for a termly or annual rail pass, please download the form at the bottom of this page.

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.

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 although prices are frozen for the Autumn term, we are still unaware of the impact on prices of the Leeds Clean Air Zone when it comes into force. Annual passes purchased in the Autumn term will not be affected by any price increases.

Should you have any queries not answered by this pack or wish to apply for a Bus Pass (the Application Form is at the back of this pack) then please contact our Transport Co-ordinator, Mrs Sally Russ.    russ.sd@woodhousegrove.co.uk
