Lancashire Schools Transport for Main School and Sixth Form Students

Lancashire Bus Services provide some transport services to Clitheroe Royal Grammar School. Places are limited and you are advised to apply for transport as soon as possible after confirming your place at the school. Priority is given to existing students in Years 8-11 and then to Year 7 students. School bus services are also used by some Sixth Form students as they stop at the Sixth Form site. This is dependent on capacity being available after places have been allocated to students in Years 7-11. Parents are advised to contact Lancashire’s School Transport Line on 0300 123 6738. Further information is also available on their website here. We do not operate any of the services to school so are not able to assist with enquiries about ticket allocation.

Boomerang Travel Ltd (Pilkingtonbus), provide one of the bus services organised by Lancashire Schools Transport and have provided this link for further information on their buses.  If you need any advice on their services, please contact
