From Hitchin one-way system Follow signs for Bedford (A600) round the town's main one-way system and when you reach the traffic lights by the large expanse of grass (known as Butts Close) go straight across, following signs the the A505. At the next roundabout go straight ahead onto the A600 towards Bedford. Go through 4 roundabouts, and the school is on the right shortly after the BP garage.

By Public Transport Trains to Hitchin run from King's Cross. It's a short taxi ride from the station, where there's a busy taxi rank, or it's a 1.6 mile walk, or you can take the infrequent bus service - but make sure you know where you're going, as the buses are old Hoppers, and do not announce the next stop. However, the bus stop at the station does have a screen listing live arrivals, so you can see if you'd be better off getting a taxi.

Buses that run from the station are the 80 (every 30 mins), or 81 (every hour) and go to opp Nutleigh Grove (which is where the bus turns left at the double mini-roundabout on the A600). Walk back to the mini-roundabout, and turn left up Bedford Rd. The school is 650m on the opposite side. These buses return from opp Beechwood Close.
Alternatively buses run past the school up Bedford Rd from the centre of Hitchin (which is a 0.6 mile walk/bus ride to the station).
