Travelling to Campus

Many of our Secondary pupils walk, cycle or scoot to school, but we understand that this can be quite daunting at first for new Year 7s (and their parents!) Luckily if you live near St Martins Primary School, this video made by Sustrans may be really helpful in planning their cycle route from St Martins to CEC.
