From Stapleton Road station exit from the platform with the mural on. (If you came from Bristol Parkway you’ll need to cross the footbridge.) When you leave the platform immediately on your right is an alley with steps down to the main road. Head down there and then head through the gap between the houses opposite and slightly off to the left. Cross the main road carefully, there is a zebra crossing a few yards to your right if traffic is busy. Once past the houses you are on Fox Road. Keep to the right down the cycle path next to the motorway. Across the motorway you should be able to see the community centre! Take the footbridge over and come say hi!
To get to the school from the community centre you head away from the motorway and bear right down Stafford Road. Turn right at the end and the school is on the right hand side.
Bus number 5 from Bristol city centre will drop you in the heart of St Werburghs, and numbers 24, 48 and 48A will take you to Stapleton Road.
If you’re driving the community centre is situated right by Junction 3 of the M32. Coming inbound to Bristol you want to exit and go all the way round the roundabout as if you were rejoining the motorway heading out of town, but bear left on to the local road from the slip. The centre is on Horley Road which is the second right. It is a residential area and parking is tricky. Perhaps the best bet is New Gatton Road running alongside the motorway, which is the first right turn after you come off the roundabout.
To get to the school come off the roundabout the same way and continue along the road. You will pass the park we’re using on your left and shortly get to another roundabout. Turn right (3rd exit) and the school is a few hundred yards on your right. Note there are two sites to the school and you will pass the older annexe building first but that is not where we are. Carry on a little way up the road to the main school site. There is a car park we have use of in front of the building.
