There is a local school bus service (Stagecoach number 36) between Hereford and Much Dewchurch, currently £1.60 for a single child fare. Please ask at Reception for details. The morning bus arrives at the Academy around 9am. The afternoon bus, number 36, leaves at 3.55pm. Parental consent to use the afternoon bus is required for all pupils except those in upper school. Forms are distributed at beginning of academic year and also available from Reception. Children over 11 years old are asked to wear a face mask due to Covid 19.
The main purpose of our minibuses is to take children on field trips and other outings. At present, there are currently two volunteer-run minibus routes to Belmont and Golden Valley, which must be paid for termly, in advance. The school is open to suggestions for other minibuses to run from other areas but there must be sufficient parent-volunteers to run route.

- To and from Belmont, Hereford via A465
