Travelling to school

Our pupils come from all over Yorkshire and wherever safe and appropriate, we encourage parents, pupils and staff to walk, cycle, and/or take the bus to and from school.  This is not only healthy and environmentally responsible but also helps reduce traffic congestion in and around our school.

Our own award-winning bus company, GSAL Transport Ltd, operates an extensive network of school buses, including three free shuttle buses from Moortown, Alwoodley and Slaid Hill.  There are 11 daily bus services at the start and end of the school day, and five late buses which leave school at 17:45 to enable pupils to take part in after school activities. There is also a bus service from GSAL to Rose Court and back for parents with children at both sites.

We are also on a number of public bus routes.
