Wingfield Academy Bus Service

Wingfield Academy runs a bus service via Marsland Travel every morning and afternoon. The cost per journey will be 80p this can be paid directly to the bus driver or alternatively you can pay for the full week/month via ParentPay (a pass will be issued at break time on a Monday if you pay via ParentPay).

Marsland Travel is a well-known reputable company with a vast amount of transportation knowledge. All the drivers have had the relevant DBS checks carried out, and MarslandTravel has provided the academy with the relevant assurances that their buses are safe to carry passengers and are road worthy.

A member of the Academy staff will meet and greet the students upon arrival at the Academy, and a member of staff will meet the students at the end of each day to ensure they are escorted to the bus.

If you require any further information regarding this service or have any queries relating to how to use ParentPay, please speak to a member of our finance team who will be happy to help.
