St Anne’s Catholic School and Sixth Form College

Sustainable Travel Plan


We have worked with major local public transport companies to provide a service where bus and train tickets for travel to and from St. Anne’s Catholic School can be ordered directly through the school.

We have managed to secure preferential rates with the travel companies so that in most cases (but not all) tickets purchased directly through the school will be at a reduced rate.

Planning Your Journey

Once you have chosen your preferred route we recommend you search the bus stops by the bus stop code on Google Street View to give you a clear idea of where to go. For example,  bus stop 'BI' at West Quay is for the X4/X5 connection in the mornings.

Before ordering a Scholar’s Pass, please check prices with the travel company directly as you may find that buying a monthly or weekly U16 ticket directly through them is a cheaper option.

Please note that passes are non-refundable and a charge will be made for replacements if they are lost or damaged.
