Transport Links

The School is located just outside the picturesque village of Milton Abbas in Dorset, approximately 30 miles south west of Salisbury, midway between the towns of Blandford and Dorchester. 

The nearest train stations include Dorchester and Gillingham and trains from these stations travel direct to London Waterloo, where connections are available to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.  Airports in the South West include Bournemouth, Southampton, Bristol and Exeter.

For day pupils we currently run a daily minibus service which covers Blandford, Wimborne, Poole, Dorchester and Shaftesbury, and for our boarding pupils we run a comprehensive transport service to London, Hampshire, Sussex, Kent, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, M5 Junction 2, Somerset and Devon, for exeats (long weekends at home), and half term.  Pupils needing to travel to and from airports can book taxis and sharing transport can be arranged wherever possible.Further information on routes covered is available in the transport information download in the iPoint box on this page.

Sixth Form day pupils have the opportunity to travel to School in their own vehicles and park them on site (in collaboration with the School's Pupil Car Use Policy - see Policies page) but parents must seek prior permission by completing and the returning the form available in the iPoint box on this page.  Similarly Sixth Form pupils may use their own cars for special occasions and by prior arrangement, parents must also complete and return the relevant form (see iPoint box).
