Booking your subject consultation

The school has an online appointment booking system which allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers. You will then receive an email confirming your appointments.

The link for this can be found by clicking the 'Quick Links' button - alternatively click HERE

Letters regarding the subject consultation will be sent out close to the date, advising you when the booking system opens and closes for the event.


Buses depart 1:40pm onwards.

Please see below regarding the replacement service for Stagecoach 828 and 830 on early closure days.

As Stagecoach do not accommodate our early closure days, Sharnbrook Academy has funded a replacement service to cover the 828 and 830 routes on these days. This will be a Shires vehicle and will depart Sharnbrook at 13:45 with the rest of the early closure buses. This service will only be available to students who hold a Stagecoach 828 or 830 bus pass and will operate a strict ‘no pass – no travel’ policy. The drop off points for this service are as follows:

Clapham (all Stops serves)
Bedford Bus Station
Biddenham Turn
Biddenham 3 Tuns
Great Denham park & ride
Bromham The Swan PH
Bromham Village Hall

We anticipate that not all Stagecoach passengers will use this service as some may be staying for each early closure. However, a school minibus will be on hand to transport any additional students should the bus reach capacity.
Please note that separate transport is being organised for any student whose Stagecoach pass has been issued by Beds Borough, and those students will be contacted separately. Any questions, please contact the school.
