Getting to and from The Philip Morant School and College

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.

Walking routes

There’s lots of footpaths around Philip Morant and its neighbouring schools. They’re a perfect way to dodge the traffic. The Norman Way route between Lexden Road and Shrub End Road provides an ideal sneaky short-cut for walkers.

Cycling routes

Norman Way, as described above, is a local cycle way so fully accessible to bikes. It links with National Cycle Network route 1 into central Colchester, as well as other off-road routes through Hilly Fields nature reserve. Those same routes also head south of the school site, joining up with residential areas. The Colchester cycle map can show you other routes which may help.

Park & Ride

Park & Ride at Colchester could help you on your journey.

Bus routes

Lexden Road and Shrub End Road/Maldon Road are both on major bus routes into and out of central Colchester and border the school site to the north and south respectively. Stops on both roads have waiting shelters and seats. They link to villages just outside Colchester, like Marks Tey and Layer-de-la-Haye.
