Getting to and from Mark Hall Academy
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.

As First Avenue is one of the main roads into Harlow, a large number of buses go past the academy. Some stops have shelter and seating, and shortly after passing the academy the road has a bus-only lane, meaning you can drive past static car traffic.
It is an approximately 1.6km’s walk to Harlow Mill train station, heading through Old Harlow. The station is on the London to Cambridge line and will suit students living near any of its stations. Greater Anglia offer discounts on train travel for students at some academies.
