Sixth Form - Transport


The transport situation has dramatically improved since the opening of the new bypass in December 2015, significantly reducing travel times in particular for those coming from Newton Abbot and beyond.


We are often asked about transport links between Exeter and Torquay.  If you live in Exeter, there are a number of travel options that you may wish to consider:


1. Train

Leaves Exeter St David’s at 07.50am and arrives at Torre station – the nearest stop – at 08.32am.  It is then a 10 minute walk to school.  This is a popular method of travel and many of our students use this train. Click HERE to go to the First Great Western journey planner service.


2.Private Direct Bus Service

The GRAM1 service is an established, well-subscribed service that runs direct from Exeter to the Torquay Grammar Schools.  For information on this service please contact C M Coaches Ltd, Marsh Barton, Exeter, EX2 8PU – Tel: 01392 487055


Students from families on a low income may be eligible for help with travel costs from the school learner support bursary.  For further information please click HERE
