There are a range of ways to travel to college including public transport services and  buses operated solely by Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form 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 daughter.  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. If this is not possible, please be respectful to our neighbours and not park across driveways.

Public Transport – Covid 19 Guidance

Government guidelines state that public transport should be avoided where possible especially during peak times. We therefore encourage you to walk, cycle or get a lift into college if at all possible. If you have to use public transport, please plan your journey around your timetable and think about travelling earlier if possible so that you arrive in college in time for your lessons.

Please refer to the bus operators’ websites (please click on the relevant link above) for updated timetables and further information regarding precautions to take whilst travelling. The wearing of face coverings is currently mandatory and although hand sanitiser will be available when you arrive in college we suggest that you carry your own personal supply.
