Student access – car
We have a dedicated student drop off area, located safely off main roads just off Fox and Hounds Lane. Students arriving by car/drop off should use this access and NOT Gretna Road. There is disabled access available from the Gretna Road access.
There is parking available here for Sixth Form students who bring a car to school.
From the City
We are conveniently situated close to the West Road. From the city centre, travel out of the city along the West Road for two and a half miles. As the road descends it passes the Fox and Hounds pub on the right hand side. Keep going downhill and Gretna Road is found on the left hand side after 500 metres. Turn left up Gretna Road and we are situated 150 metres on the left.
From the A1/A69
Leave the A1 or A69 at the junction of these two major roads and travel towards the city centre. Pass straight over a roundabout by the Denton pub, and pass Benwell Hill Cricket Club on the right. Shortly after the cricket club, Gretna Road is on the right hand side. Turn up Gretna Road and we are situated 150 metres on the left.
We are easily accessible by public transport with Stagecoach in Newcastle services 10, 11, 39 and 40 providing a frequent service from the City Centre and the West End of the City. You should alight at the stop for the West Road Crematorium, walk up the West Road and then take the first right along Gretna Road, keep walking and we are on the left hand side further up the road.
