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.

Although no public bus routes go directly to the school, Chelmer Valley High benefits from being next door to Broomfield Hospital. About 250 metres from the school gate is the hospital bus station, with buses to Walthams, Pleshey, Great Leighs and other villages. There are shelters and seating there, as well as real-time information boards so you know when the buses will arrive. There’s also a special shuttle bus to the hospital from Chelmer Valley park-and-ride site and students can easily walk from there to school.
