Walking

Walking times:

5 mins from Spilsby Road – Opposite Boston High School

10 minutes from Holy Trinity Church – Spilsby Road

15/20 minutes from Wide Bargate (Town Centre)

25 minutes from Marian Road campus.

Bike Routes

Many of Boston’s roads now have bike lanes. We urge students to stick to these lanes if they come to school by bicycle.

Bicycles can be left in our secure bike compound which is situated at the front left of our main entrance. This compound will be locked during the day. We do however recommend you invest in a bike lock for your own piece of mind.

All students who cycle to school must wear an approved bicycle helmet and have working lights if they intend to cycle home during the autumn/winter months.

Worried about the health of your bike? Book yourself a free bike health check to make sure it is suitable for travel.

Bus

When using the bus make sure you leave enough time to get to school on time even with some traffic delays to ensure no learning minutes are lost. Below are two possible bus routes you can use to get to school via bus routes.

When using a bus make sure you are respectful and follow the instructions of the bus driver. Remember our values of PRIDE and don’t forget you are representing both yourself and the Academy to our local community.

Car routes – Parent parking (drop-off, pick-up)

It is our preference that our students come to school either by walking, cycling or by bus. Tollfield Road is very busy in the morning and at the end of the school day. There are two primary schools close-by and Boston High School at the top of Tollfield road.

For parents who bring their child to school by car; we recommend you drop your child off on one of the roads close-by. Fernleigh Way and Somersby Way are good options. Alternatively, you could arrange for your child to walk a little further from Princess Anne Road where the traffic will be a little lighter.
