Bad Weather

In the event of adverse weather conditions, The South Wolds Academy & Sixth Form will liaise with bus companies to arrange an earlier collection to ensure students can travel home safely. The South Wolds Academy & Sixth Form will inform students and contact parents to confirm if the school is to close and what the arrangements will be.

Lost Property

Should any property be left on a bus, you will need to contact the bus company for the bus your child travels on. The bus contact details can be found below for each bus route.


At The South Wolds Academy & Sixth Form, we are committed to doing all that we can to ensure that every student is safe on the bus and that behaviour is good.  If behaviour is below our expectations, then we do impose sanctions in line with our Behaviour Management and Rewards Policy.  In rare instances, we will work with Nottingham County Council and the bus provider to ban students from the bus where behaviour is below our expectations.  Any concerns about behaviour on the bus should be reported to the South Wolds Academy & Sixth Form on 0115 937 3506.
