Travelling to the
Parking is available for parents/carers who drive pupils to and from the Academy. Parents must park in the school grounds in the designated car park and not on any of the surrounding roads.
Walking & Cycling
For those who prefer pedal power, there are cycle racks to secure their bikes until home time.
With health and reduced carbon emissions in mind, we always encourage pupils to walk to the Academy, if the distance is manageable.
The Generation M website provides full details of the bus routes that serve Tong Leadership Academy, and the associated timetables.
Please note that Generation M have advised that parents are required to complete an online renewal form if they wish for their child to continue to use the school bus service for the next academic year (2018/19). The closing date for these applications is June 30th 2018. Information regarding the online renewal process can be found on the Generation M website using the link provided above.
School Bus Service
Details of the bus routes can be found here. The service numbers are T1, T2, T3 and T4. Students wishing to travel on the school service will need to apply for a yellow bus pass. The pass can be applied for on the GenerationM website found on the link above. If you have any queries, please contact Mr Seale who will be more than happy to assist with any concerns.
School transport disruption due to bad weather – information and advice from Bradford Metro
Bus operators work hard to maintain their services as circumstances allow, but decisions must be taken by them on health and safety grounds to ensure the wellbeing of their customers and staff. In the event of bad weather, the driver of the vehicle needs to consider whether it is safe to carry out the whole route or part of the route.
Advice for parents and carers during bad weather
- In the event of bad weather, parents or carers are advised to visit the Metro website or check the @metrogenm twitter page to find out if their service is running.
- If pupils live on a minor road, parents or carers should advise them to wait on a main road for a bus as buses may not be able to travel down minor roads that have not been cleared or gritted.
- For public buses, please also see the Travel disruption page.
