Transport

Girls travel from far and wide to St Mary’s, on St Mary's own fleet of school buses or on services run by other operators.

St Mary’s own buses currently serve Danbury, Chelmsford, Maldon, Witham, Great Dunmow, Felsted, Great Notley, Braintree, Coggeshall, Stanway, Mersea, Peldon and Layer. In 2018, the school proposes to launch its own service from Frinton-on-Sea (serving Kirby Cross, Thorpe-le-Soken, Weeley, David Lloyd Club and Colchester North Station) and Halstead (serving Gosfield, Sible Hedingham, Earls Colne, Chappel, Fordham and West Bergholt).

Other providers of school transport stop right outside St Mary’s Senior School - please contact the transport provider direct for information on routes, timetables and prices.
