The school is most easily approached by the A46:
Directions from the A46
At the roundabout where the B439 from Stratford-upon-Avon joins the A46, take the road sign-posted to Salford Priors. 2)
After a quarter of a mile you pass a church on the left (set back from the road so easily missed) and take the next turn right into School Road. 3)
Follow the road for a further quarter of a mile and turn left into our drive by a tall, crooked pine tree, signed to Angus Soft Fruits
(If you see a telephone box on the right you have passed the entrance to our drive). 4)
There is a security gate half way up the drive. If it is closed please call us from the gate so that we can let you in - if the phone is not answered please do not leave a message on the answer phone but try again in a few minutes. 5)
After the fourth sleeping policeman there is a large barn on the right, bear left off the concrete and you will come to the back of the house.Directions from nearby motorways to the A46
