By Metro:

Walkergate metro is approximately a 2/3 minute walk from Benfield School. Metro’s run from this station very regularly and are a popular mode of transport for a lot of our pupils.

 

By Bike:

We encourage pupils to cycle to school when possible. We provide a bike lock up which can be used by all pupils (must provide own lock) and this will remain locked throughout the school day to provide extra security.

All pupils who cycle to school must follow guidelines in the Benfield Cycle to School Policy, and obtain a school bike permit.
