Getting to School

The school is well served by local transport, both the normal service buses which run along Burnage Lane, Kingsway, and Mauldeth Road, and by special buses which leave for Longsight and Piccadilly.

Manchester City Council allows for the provision of free bus passes for students who live more than three miles from school.

For students who live 2 miles away from the school and are on free school meals or whose parents receive maximum bus tax credit, a pass is also provided for free.

Applications for free school passes should be applied for through Manchester City Council. Click here to apply.

We do our best to supervise students as they leave school but we ask that you impress upon your son the importance of abiding by the normal rules of safety when crossing the busy roads around the school.

Specific travel advice for travelling to Burnage Academy from Wythenshawe.

Transport for Greater Manchester has a dedicated School’s Hub, with information about public transport services, tickets and passes, latest dedicated travel advice for our school and tips around cycling and walking.

*5 to 16 year olds can apply for an igo pass which allows them to travel at concessionary fare on buses, trains and trams in Greater Manchester.


With three schools in close proximity, we rely on our families to consider the safety of our wider community and respect for our neighbours. We ask families to consider the use of public transport or to have an arranged pick-up point away from the busiest section of Burnage Lane. 

Parking restrictions are in place and we urge parents and carers to adhere to these. School staff may ask drivers to move vehicles that are parked unsafely. Full details can be found here: Parking outside schools | Parking restrictions | Manchester City Council
