Follow signs through Chester to A483 Wrexham/North Wales. The school is on the left, a mile south of the city.
There is visitor parking in front of the main entrance under the clock tower.

By bus

There is a public bus or train service accessible to King’s from most surrounding areas.
In most cases there are Scholar Passes available which makes using these service affordable from Arriva, Stagecoach and Park and Ride.

We have made access to Scholar Passes for discounted travel easier and the passes are now available to purchase via Parentpay. You can apply for a Park and Ride Scholar Pass here. Passes can then be collected from Senior School reception in the first week of term. These discounted passes make travelling to King’s cost as little as £6.50 per week. A pass for Park and Ride services has also been negotiated for the equivalent of £2 per week.

Please click on the link below to the Travelling to School booklet as a general guide. All service times and routes should be checked.
