Transport and Travel
Rossall School is very well served by transport links, as well as our own dedicated school bus service for day pupils, we have our own Rossall School tram stop and we are only five minutes away from Poulton-le-Fylde train station.
For our international students, the nearest airports are Manchester and Liverpool. Both airports are only an hour away from Rossall and we run a shuttle bus service to school at the beginning and end of each term and half term. Manchester Airport is also very easy to reach on a direct train to and from Poulton-le-Fylde station.
We provide an extensive School Bus Service for Rossall day pupils living in the Lancashire region that covers the whole of the Fylde, Wyre and Lancaster areas. The School bus service is managed by Peter Hutton MBE and operated by a fleet of drivers who have all been checked and cleared by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
Passes are available to buy at the RosShop before the start of each term.
The drop off / pick up areas listed below are given as a guide. The chosen bus stop will be positioned on a main road within the specified area which is convenient for the majority of passengers. Parents will be informed of the exact location prior to the start of each term.
The times shown below are provisional and should be used as a guide, allowing 5-10 minutes either side for traffic. The bus will arrive at Rossall School at 08:25 each morning and will leave at 17:30 each evening.
If you live in an area which is not currently covered by our bus service, please contact us as we are willing to consider new routes:
