Out of catchment transport information
Samuel Whitbread Academy has been negotiating with new transport providers to ensure we can meet the transport needs of our out-of-catchment students, covered by the SW1, SW2, SW3 and SW4.
We are pleased to announce that Samuel Whitbread Academy has taken full responsibility of the routes from September 2022. An agreement has been made with Barton Coaches to ensure the long-term security of these routes. This will provide peace of mind and allow families to plan for the future, with the confidence that their children can continue their education at Samuel Whitbread Academy.
We have been able to negotiate terms that will keep the passes at the lowest prices possible. Running the passes and routes internally has reduced overheads and kept costs down.
Half-termly passes will be available through Parentmail and will equate to £2.50 per journey. Pay-as-you-go options will be available too, as long as there is space on the bus. Our advice is to purchase a half-termly pass to secure a seat for your child.
Please check the routes to help you select which pass your child would need.
If you would like to purchase a pass for the bus routes below, please email SWA-Transport@bestacademies.org.uk with the specific route pass you require.
We will then arrange for the payment option to be added your ParentMail account.
