Getting to and from De La Salle School
These routes and maps are suggestions of how you could stop taking the car and swap to cycling, walking, or scooting to school. They don’t show every possible route and you could have fun finding a way that works for you. If you know a safe way that gets you there even quicker, that’s great! Take that route instead.
Heavy traffic zone
The school is very well served by footpaths and short-cuts. The school is almost completely hidden from any roads, with a footpath heading right down the front of the main building. The neighbouring estates are full of footpaths enabling walkers to cut between houses. There’s an underpass for walkers to cross the busy A1235.
The academy is very well served by footpaths and short-cuts. As well as the usual alleys joining up streets and closes, there’s also a pedestrian bridge over the busy Broadmayne along one side of the school. The pavements are nice and wide, and the nearby roads have both pelican and zebra crossings.
Basildon is well designed for cycling. The whole of the A1235 to the north side of the school site has an off-road cycle path on the far side of the road, and the underpass allows riders to cross safely. The section of Ghyllgrove, the road to the school, approaching the back gates also has an off-road cycle path alongside it. All these parts of the network are shown on the Basildon cycle map.
Plenty of bus services travel along Whitmore Way, less than half a mile walk from the school, and connect to Basildon town centre and the bus station. There’s also a slip road from the A1235 if you’re travelling west, reserved for buses and cyclists, which allows rapid access into the rear entrance of the school.
