We anticipate a large proportion of students walking or cycling to the Academy as there are safe routes within Tadpole Garden Village and from other parts of North Swindon. Cycle shelters will be provided. Students will be able to store their cycle helmets in their lockers.
The no.4 bus operates from the centre of Swindon to Tadpole Garden Village and will stop within or just outside the school car park. The frequency of buses running at the start and end of the school day is planned to increase once GWA opens. We are in discussions with Stagecoach over the exact arrangements for the service and are exploring with Stagecoach now that we know the distribution of students who will be attending the Academy. Any new routes would only run if Stagecoach believe that they are commercially viable.
