School Transport from Leyland via Farington, Lostock Hall, Bamber Bridge and Walton-le-Dale

This service is provided by Penwortham Priory Academy via a commercial operator.

To keep costs as low as possible, we have taken the decision to merge two existing bus routes (Farington/Leyland and the Bamber Bridge/Walton Le Dale/Lostock Hall). Unfortunately to accommodate this we need to alter the bus route, remove the odd stop due to the route change and revise the times.

Due to the increased charges from the service provider, we have had to review the daily price of providing this service. We have seen a considerable increase in costs however we are able to confirm that the price for the academic year 2022-23 will remain at £3.50 per day/£665 per annum, with the school continuing to subsidise these services.  From September 2023 the daily cost will increase to £4 per day. 

Please note - no cash payments can be accepted on the Priory-managed buses. Payments are to be made via our online payment facility, SCOPay. Fees can be paid in six half-termly instalments via SCOPay and the first payment should be made by the end of September.  SCOPay login details will be issued during the first two weeks after starting at Priory. 

If you have an enquiry or wish to use this bus service please email transport@priory.lancs.sch.uk.
