Saint Bede's enjoys a good reputation in the local community and we are pleased to receive many compliments from people who meet our pupils in the street, in shops and on public transport. Our pupils are aware that they are representing the school when they wear our uniform and should show the same levels of courtesy, consideration and respect that we expect to see in school when they are travelling on public and school transport.
Information about travelling to school can be found on the School Transport page of the Lancashire County Council website.

School Bus Timetables
The timetables for the the Autumn Term 2018 should be published by Lancashire County Council at the end of the Summer Term. There should be little or no change to the previous timetables but please check the timetables close to the start of the Autumn Term just in case there have been any revisions.
School bus service to Blackpool
Following the cessation of the 688 service from Blackpool to Saint Bede’s, the current 916 service (operated by Bank View Travel) extended its route to incorporate the Blackpool section of the former 688 service from the start of the new academic year on 4th September. This was on a trial basis to establish whether or not there is sufficient demand for a single service covering Blackpool and St. Anne’s together and it was agreed that it would be reviewed after a number of weeks to assess viability. Unfortunately, as it is carrying passenger numbers in the single figures, it is not viable for the operator to continue running the extended service for so few pupils and the number of passengers will decrease further when Year 11 commence study leave and pupils get involved in extra-curricular activities after school. Therefore, the existing service to Blackpool will finish at half-term and when pupils return to school on 29th October, they will need to make other provision such as Blackpool Transport routes 7 & 11
We are disappointed that financial cutbacks have impacted significantly on home-school transport provision across Lancashire and understand the difficulties this presents parents with.
