By Bus

We thought it may be useful to you to know about Transport for Greater Manchester’s (TfGM) Route Explorer; which is now live on www.tfgm.com/route-explorer. This asks people where they want to go and then shows them all the direct bus services that they can catch, when they leave, where the nearest bus stops are and how they can link up with trams and trains.

Route Explorer, which works on smartphones, tablets and PCs, is TfGM’s latest digital product designed to make life easier for anyone who wants to make a journey in Greater Manchester.

Once Route Explorer has found the start and end points of a direct journey, it links to an online bus timetable library, sending passengers to the timetable they need. The map shows the route and all the stops along the way, as well as nearby tram and rail stations.

Although it currently only searches for direct bus services, once you’ve got into the tool, you’ll find there are many ways to use Route Explorer to explore the bus network and identify opportunities to connect between other bus, tram and rail services.  For any further information
or for details of bus routes to the school please visit www.gmpte.com or telephone 0161 228 7811 or click on the link 'School Bus Timetable'

By Air

From the M61, junction 6 take the A6027 past the Reebok stadium, take the left fork at the Beehive roundabout along the A673 signposted for Horwich.

Travel along this road which joins into Rivington Lane, the school is situated on your right.

*Please note Car Parking is limited so you may have to park on Rivington Lane*.

Please refrain from parking in front of the bollards at the bottom of the main drive from 3pm onwards, as this causes an obstruction to any emergency vehicles needing to enter the site.
