Changes to Dart 1 (04/01/17)
The Academy currently operates busses from Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Totnes and surrounding areas.
Coaches will leave the Academy at 3.25pm, at the end of the school day.
On a Tuesday we will run the buses at 4.20pm to allow those that wish to have the opportunity to participate in extra curricular activities, revision sessions and other activities to do so. Academy staff will consider the Tuesday evening as one to prioritise for activities to ensure maximum participation.
Further to parent consultation a final letter confirming times and pickup points will be sent out shortly. Bus passes are not required for the first day.
If you have any queries in the meantime, please phone 01803 839700 and press option 4 for transport.

If your child travels to and from the Academy on any public service buses, please read the following information from Devon County Council:
Dartmouth Academy supports the (DCC) Devon County Council’s “No Pass No Travel Scheme” that operates on transport to and from this school.
Only students who show a valid travel pass to the driver on every journey will be allowed to travel. Students must travel on the vehicle indicated on their pass.
Please ensure that your child has their travel pass before they leave home every day.
Please ensure that your child knows what to do in the event they are not allowed to travel or the bus does not arrive (e.g. because of breakdown or traffic conditions or severe weather). School attendance is very important and it is best to be prepared for any of these eventualities.
DCC will carry out regular pass checks throughout the year.
Drivers are not allowed to carry passengers who cannot show a valid pass.
If your child loses their pass during the day they should ask for a 10 day temporary bus pass at the Academy Helpdesk. Replacement passes cost £5 each and can be ordered online, or by sending a cheque with a replacement form.
