Our Location

Our school is situated in the small village of Halmer End within the parish of Audley, near Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire. The centre of Newcastle is about 10 minutes away by car. We are about 10 mins from junction 16 of the M6.

Bus routes operate to the school from Newcastle Bus station via:

  • Chesterton and Audley
  • Knutton and Silverdale
  • Waterhays

Both Stoke and Crewe railway stations are about 20 mins from the school.


By car from the M6 (about 5 mins from the M6):
Leave junction 16 of the M6 and travel along the A500 towards Stoke. At the first exit turn right (signposted Audley). At the mini roundabout turn left. Turn right by the Boughey Arms. Pass through the village of Audley. Pass over an old railway bridge and turn right. The school is on the left.

By car from Newcastle Under Lyme (about 8 mins):
Going round the town inner ring road anti-clockwise, take the B5367 (near to Sainsburys). Pass through the village of Knutton and continue until you reach the village of Halmer End. The school is on the right at the bottom of the hill in the centre of the village.

By car from Waterhays, Silverdale, Chesterton and Wolstanton. (about 10mins)

If travelling from Waterhays or Chesterton follow the Audley Road, turn left onto Bignal End, over Boon Hill. Turn left into Miles Green Village and right into Station Road. From Silverdale either travel through Knutton or take the road through Scot Hay.
