Map and Directions


By car:

  1. Travelling from the North: Travel on the A595 towards Whitehaven. As you approach the built up area, ignore the right fork (by a big garage) leading down into the town and stay on the A595 (for Egremont and Millom). Just after the first set of traffic lights and just before the second, take the slip road to the left sign posted B5295 for Cleator Moor. At the roundabout turn left up the hill.
  2. Travelling from the South: Travel towards Whitehaven and at the big roundabout, as you enter the outskirts, take the second exit (signposted Hensingham and Cleator Moor). At the next roundabout, take the second exit and turn left up the hill. At the top of the hill there is the fire station on the left and just past this there is a roundabout, take the first exit (sign posted Moresby Parks). The entrance to the school is about 150m up, on the right, and is a one way system.

You can get a train to Whitehaven Train Station from either Barrow or Carlisle. You can then take a taxi from the station to the school which is a journey of about 2 ½ miles.

Take the Number 31 bus from Bransty Row bus stop (outside Wetherspoons Public House) to Cleator Moor Road bus stop which goes past the exit of the School. This bus leaves approximately every 30 minutes.
