Subsidised Dedicated School Buses

Girls join our school from all across the City of Liverpool.  To support this we operate four dedicated bus services.  These services operate with a subsidy provided by the school.  This ensures that the price of an annual pass is similar to the Merseytravel Solo passes.

Whilst these services are prioritised for Year 7 pupils, they are also used by many of our Sixth Form girls as it provides a convenient option for girls who travel from further afield.  It also provides the reassurance of being able to get to school without having to change bus service.

Details of our bus services can be found at the link below:


We have laptops for sixth form students available for either long-term loan or use as and when required.

Free Morning Bagels

All students are eligible to receive a toasted and buttered bagel each morning. 

These bagels are very popular with the girls!
