Transport & Travel
As you know we have been in contact with public transport provider Arriva. The 97 bus leaves Fairfield (Dickens Boulevard) at 07:38am. This arrives at Hallworth Drive in Stotfold (just before the traffic lights) at approximately 7:43am. Pupils can then walk to the school, a fifteen-minute walk where they will be able to access the school. There is a later bus but this is likely to be full with Etonbury pupils who have a later start. For the homeward journey the 97 leaves the Etonbury site at 15:50pm to arrive at Dickens Boulevard at 16:09pm.
