Please be advised that Sandwell Academy no longer provides a coach service for our students. Thandi Executive Coaches provide an independent coach service which travels to and from the Academy each day. This coach service is for students who have pre-booked places at the beginning of the academic year. Parents will need to deal directly with Thandi if they wish their child to travel by coach.
For all enquiries regarding coaches - please contact Thandi Coaches.
Users of the Thandi Coach Service should arrange a place on the Session 3 coach directly with Thandi.
The transport arrangements have been made with due regard to the best interests of the students. Suggestions for improvement will be accepted by the Academy but decision is final.
Students who intend to bring a bicycle to the Academy should make contact with the Student Support Officer, Miss Baker to arrange a contract to bring bicycles on to the Academy site.
Sixth Form students are not allowed to bring cars or mopeds on to the Academy site.
Information regarding parking facilities on the WBA Tom Silk Site should be obtained from Miss Baker.
Please do not drop off students, park or turn your cars around in the entrance to the Academy. This is illegal and discourteous. Parents need to make themselves aware of the yellow markings on the road outside the Academy and park in a safe place. In the interests of students' safety, parents are not allowed to come on to the Academy site to drop students off.
Please note that we work closely with the Highways Agency, local council and the Police to enforce traffic regulations in the interest of student safety.
Please use Entrance B. The cloakroom is for your coats and bags. No coats or bags are to be taken into the main body of the Academy. Teaching staff will be available to help and direct you.
