Archbishop Holgate’s welcomes students from across the city, from East Yorkshire and further. We have students who come from over 30 different primary schools and are very lucky to have excellent transport links, which cater for the needs of all our students.


If your child walks, please can you ensure, they use the pelican crossings (if appropriate) and are dressed appropriately for the weather.


We are blessed with cycle lanes just outside of the school and we have bike parks, where students must use a secure lock. Again we do stress the importance of students being responsible and following the highway code. All students should wear cycle helmets and florescent clothing.


We have excellent service from a wide range of bus routes. From September 2023 families can purchase tickets for the A41/A42/A43 bus online – Children will need to have a valid ticket to use any of these services. Tickets can be shown either on a mobile phone or a printed pass. If you do not have a printer at home please contact school and we will print the ticket for you.

The links to purchase tickets for the A41/A42 and A42 can be found next to each service.

We do ask if parents do decide to drive their child to school that for health and safety reasons they DO NOT drive on to the school site, before or after school when it is very busy. We would also ask that you drop off your child a suitable distance from the school and do not pull up on the double yellow lines.
