Plenty of Joyce Frankland students travel on school buses, and there’s an unofficial one-way system around Bury Water Lane making it safer for all concerned.
The 301 service passes through the village between Bishop’s Stortford and Saffron Walden, taking in Stansted Mountfitchet. The 60 service loops around Newport on its way back and forth from Saffron Walden. There are stops for both services, with seating and raised kerbs, on the High Street, a very short walk from the academy.
