By road: Turn off the M6 at Junction 40 on to the A66 to Keswick. Then take the A595 to Whitehaven. St Bees is clearly signposted off the A595, three miles beyond Whitehaven and 47 miles from Junction 40. Our advice is not to follow Sat Nav instructions which lead you off at Junction 36, as this will bring you a convoluted (although picturesque) route through the Lake District. Take the M6 and leave at Junction 40 – taking an onward route along the A66 and B595.
Pupils who attend St Bees are welcome to use the School mini-buses to get to and from school. Our school bus service is operated at an additional cost and further information on the routes will be available in due course.
By rail: St Bees railway station on our doorstep. The Carlisle to Barrow line is operated by Northern Rail. Carlisle is on the main West Coast line run by Virgin trains. Carlisle to London takes just over three hours while Carlisle to St Bees takes just over one hour.
By air: International flights fly in and out of Manchester Airport (140 miles from St Bees). Newcastle Airport is only ninety miles away and Liverpool airport services international flights as well. The School provides transport to and from these airports at the beginning and end of every term the cost of which is included in the fees (conditions of travel must be met).
