Transport to School

We are thrilled to be working with Lakeside Coaches to provide home-to-school transport for NGHS students.

Following a parent consultation, we launched two routes in September 2022, with the aspiration to expand the routes as student numbers grow. From September 2023 we now have THREE routes.

Our current routes serve Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton, Ironbridge, Lawley, Randlay, Priorslee, St Georges, Codsall, Albrighton, Shifnal, Donnington, Wellington, Admaston, Shawbirch and Leegomery. 

An important aspect of coach travel is safeguarding. Our students are not issued with traditional bus passes. Rather they use QR codes, either printed or on their phones, which enables parents to check to ensure they are safely on board, that the coach has arrived on time and allows the school to review who has travelled each day and whether they should have arrived at school safely. This is real peace of mind and an important part of our safeguarding culture at NGHS.

In addition to this important safety aspect, we will have strict controls around coach boarding at the end of the day to ensure students board the correct coach, safely, on Wellington Road.

If you have any questions about the coach service, please contact Mrs Aldridge in the Finance Office via
