King Edward VI Grammar School
Getting to and from King Edward VI Grammar 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.
There’s a lot of footpaths around King Edward VI Grammar School (KEGS). They’re a perfect way to avoid traffic. From Swiss Avenue to Maltese Road, around the back of the school, or down the back of the Avenues, there’s plenty of options for walking.
Broomfield Road, where the school is, has cycle lanes on the road in both directions nearby. There are also lots of much quieter roads you can use, allowing you to bypass the congestion. The walking routes can also be used by cyclists. National Cycle Network route 1 follows the river not far from the school, joining central Chelmsford to Writtle and Chelmer Village.

Being on one of the main routes into Chelmsford, KEGS benefits from being close to bus services from Broomfield, the Walthams, Great Leighs and Braintree. For those going elsewhere Chelmsford bus station is about a 5 minute walk away.
