How will my child get to school? (School/Public transport, safe walking and cycle routes from the main military housing areas.)
We offer a subsidised mini bus for Year 7 from Tidworth, Bulford, Durrington and Upavon. There are buses from Perham Down, Tidworth and Ludgershall which stop outside the Academy. If you are eligible for transport you will be sent a bus pass application form by County Hall when you are offered your place.
