Mayflower High School
Getting to and from Mayflower High 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 highlighted heavy traffic zone on the map shows the area that will have the heaviest traffic at school time. By using alternate routes and a mix of walking and cycling, you can avoid sitting in traffic and being late for school.
Mayflower School has excellent walking access. There’s a pelican crossing directly outside on the busy Stock Road and a zebra crossing not far away to help with crossing safely. There is a footpath running up the southern side of the school.so anyone living behind the school has a direct route. There are further short-cut footpaths all around the neighbouring estates. There are pedestrian entrances to the school on Stock Road and Oakwood Drive.
Stock Road, where the main entrance to the school is located, is straight and providing good sight lines to cyclists. As an alternative, National Cycle Network route 13 runs very closely behind the school, linking to Stock and near to Ramsden Heath. It also goes in the other direction into central Billericay which provides safe access to the train station.
The 100 service runs directly past the school, travelling between Chelmsford and Basildon, and taking in places like Stock and South Green. Only about 300 metres away are stops for other services, heading around the estates of northern Billericay where many students live.
Billericay railway station is a mile walk from the school, with pavements all the way and plenty of road crossings. The nearest stations on that line are Shenfield and Wickford. Greater Anglia offer discounts on train travel for students at some schools.
