Buses, Trains and Travel


Bus Map for the 2021-2022 academic year

Public bus services – Trains – Private school bus services

Our location just off the A6 and its proximity to Woodsmoor and Davenport railway stations mean that we are well served by private school bus services, public buses and rail.

Buses: public

We are on the main 192 route from Hazel Grove to Manchester, through Stockport.

Other bus services that run along the A6 outside school include:

  • 199 from Buxton

The 378 from Bramhall stops at Davenport railway station, a short walk away.

Trains

Woodsmoor and Davenport railway stations are both a 10 minute walk from the school. The stations are on the Buxton line, which runs from Manchester to Buxton, through Stockport, Whaley Bridge, Disley and Hazel Grove.

Stockport station is a little over one and a half miles north of the school and is easily reached with frequent bus services. The 192 bus stops directly outside the school.

The school was informed on Friday 20th August that Jones Coaches are merging with Belle Vue Coaches with immediate effect. The new contact for the routes previously operated by Jones Coaches is Mr Mike Mitchell; he can be contacted on 0161 947 9477 or via email at mike@bellevue-mcr.com.

As a result of the merger between Jones Coaches and Belle Vue this has meant that the SG1 and SG2 services are now combined into SG1/2; please see new pick up/drop off points and timetable below. If you have any queries please about the SG1/2 service, please contact Mr Mike Mitchell at Belle Vue.

For those pupils who live in the Bramhall area, the B1 bus run by Bullocks Coaches (0161 428 5265) provides a reliable service. Please be assured that the school will make the best effort to ensure that the transition of services from Jones Coaches to Belle Vue Coaches will be as smooth as possible.
