School Bus Information

Due to the Corona Virus, all school bus services have been suspended with effect from 31st March until further notice.

Bus Diversion information

Update: United Utilities have advised that the work is taking longer than planned, aiming to complete by 29th March 2020 although this date may be extended again. 

Street Bridge Road off Mill Brow is going to be closed from Saturday 15th February for approximately 4 weeks.  This will affect school buses 831 and 832 to and from Royton and Shaw.

TFGM have advised that the diversion for the 831 and 832 will be the same as the one we have used in the past which is as normal to Rochdale Road then Oldham Road, Broadway, Burnley Lane, Chadderton Hall Road to school.  The afternoon will operate the reverse of this. See amended routes below

831: From Thornham, Turk's Head via Castleton Road, Thornham Lane, Rochdale Road then Oldham Road, Broadway, Burnley Lane, Chadderton Hall Road to school. 

832: From Shaw, Wren's Nest via Smallbrook Road, Milnrow Road, Rochdale Road, Thornham Road, Fir Lane, Dogford Road, Rochdale Road then Oldham Road, Broadway, Burnley Lane, Chadderton Hall Road to school. 


North Chadderton School aims to instil respect for others in all its students.

Therefore, we expect students to display a high standard of behaviour when wearing our school uniform and whilst travelling to and from school, particularly when using public transport.

We expect students to:

  • Communicate with the driver politely and respectfully
  • Show any bus passes or provide the fare for any journey undertaken
  • Sit calmly on a seat wherever possible
  • Avoid any behaviour which may disturb the concentration of the driver, or may damage the bus environment, such as throwing food or tampering with the emergency exit
  • Refrain from smoking on the bus
  • Show respect for all other passengers travelling on the bus

Any student who does not adhere to these expectations will have a consequence in line with the school standards and expectations policy. This may involve banning a student from using the bus for a determined period of time.

This is in line with Government guidance, which refers to school’s power to sanction students for “misbehaviour" when the pupil is:

  • taking part in any school-organised or school-related activity or
  • travelling to or from school or wearing school uniform or
  • in some other way identifiable as a pupil at the school
  • or misbehaviour at any time, whether or not the conditions above apply, that could have repercussions for the orderly running of the school or poses a threat to another pupil or member of the public or could adversely affect the reputation of the school.

School Bus Timetable

837 Bus Service

There is a trial in place, whereby Market Street in Shaw will be closed on Thursdays for market day and, as a consequence, buses will be diverted.  The diversion for the 837 is via Beal Lane, Eastway and Greenfield Lane.  The trial is still ongoing.
