School Buses

Timetables for all buses going to and from the South Wolds Academy and Sixth Form can be downloaded by clicking on the appropriate link below.

We work in partnership with Nottingham Transport to ensure that the buses are punctual and reliable.  If you encounter any problems with the service then please contact the school office.  (0115 9373506 - option 0) or Nottingham Transport 0300 500 80 80

We are committed to do all that we can to ensure that every student is safe on the bus and that behaviour is good.  If behaviour is not good then we do impose sanctions in line with our behaviour management policy.  In rare instances we will work with Nottingham Transport to ban students from the bus whose behaviour is below our expectations.  Any concerns about behaviour on the bus should be reported to the Inclusion Support Unit (0115 9373506).

Travel Assistance for Cotgrave Residents
