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 ten 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.

Arriving to Rossall

We offer a shuttle service to and from Manchester and Liverpool airports. The school minibuses are operated by a Rossall representative who has been DBS checked. All representatives carry a photo ID card and appropriate paperwork from the School. We have an excellent working relationship with staff at Manchester Airport and with UKVI.

The representative will wait for students at the airport, until their plane has landed (even if the flight has been delayed) and they have arrived safely.

Manchester Airport

The Rossall representative will greet students in Terminal 1 at the Information Desk in the Arrivals Hall.

Liverpool Airport

The Rossall representative will greet students in the main terminal.

Local School Bus Service

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 Preston areas. The School bus service is 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 are listed below.

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.
