Travelling to College

There is a range of ways to travel to College on public transport services and on buses operated solely by Sir John Deane’s College or in partnership with Mid-Cheshire College.

Where possible we encourage you to walk, cycle or use the bus but students who wish to drive can apply for a permit to park their car on campus. There is no charge for this. 

We may be able to help with the cost of travel to college via grants from the 16-19 Bursary Fund.

Parking outside College

We are very mindful of the impact that traffic congestion around the College can have on the residents who live close by, particularly at the end of the day when parents may be waiting to pick up their son or duaghter.  Please help us to minimise the impact on our neighbours by waiting in one of the car parks at the rear of the College rather than on Monarch Drive and the surrounding residential roads.

Bus Service

The College currently operates its own bus services from the following areas. If you click on the links below you will see full details of the route and current charges.

If you think that you might need a seat on any of these buses please complete the initial interest form and return it to Andrea Moores at the College. You are not making a firm commitment at this stage but it is important that we know the level of possible interest so that we can make sure that we have enough seats available.

  • Little Leigh, Barnton, Weaverham
  • Comberbach, Great Budworth, Marston, Wincham, Lostock Gralam
