Travel to SRWA
There are good public transport links between SRWA, Lancing, Shoreham, and the surrounding areas.
We communicate regularly with our PTA, West Sussex County Council and the local public transport providers to ensure that services remain satisfactory, and improvements are made where necessary. This year in addition to the public bus and train services we have also secured the services of A&A Travel to provide a private bus between Shoreham and the Academy (details below).
Compass Travel run a public bus service from Shoreham to the Sir Robert Woodard Academy. The current service is the 19A and details of the timetable can be found here. A termly bus pass is available, details of which can be found at https://www.compass-travel.co.uk/product/19a-sir-robert-woodard-pass/.

Reminder of the current key guidance for safe rail travel:
· Wear a face covering - this is a legal requirement if you are 11 and over (unless you are exempt)
· Please keep your distance from other passengers
· Carry hand sanitiser and wash your hands before and after travelling
· Travel at quieter times if at all possible
For tickets, students and their parents may want to consider getting our Key Smartcard to make it easier and faster to buy or renew tickets, and to minimise contact. More details on how to get a card, including a child Key Smartcard, can be found on the relevant website:
