Travel to Myton

Our recent travel survey showed that the majority (28%) of our students walk to school, closely followed by those who cycle to school (26%) and those who travel as a car passenger (22%), with 14% of our students taking the bus.

Myton School has a travel plan in place, which seeks to increase the numbers of students and staff travelling to school by foot, bike and bus, and aims to promote healthy, sustainable and environmentally friendly travel to Myton School for our students and staff.

We aim to achieve this through:

  • Promoting local and national sustainable travel initiatives
  • Providing information on public transport links to the school
  • Myton School staff incentives such as the Cycle to Work Scheme, lift share car club and the availability of EV charges for staff
  • Encouraging the use of bikes through DR. Bike (next event is Monday 25 March) and BikeRegister bike marking sessions

Walk to School Week – 20 to 24 May 2024

Warwick Station is an approximately 20 minute walk to Myton School, and Leamington Spa Station is a 30 minute walk.

By bus

You may be entitled to free transport for your child if you live over three miles from school and Myton School is your closest school or priority/catchment school.

At Myton we are delighted that so many (about 400) of our students choose to cycle to school and we continue to encourage cycling to school wherever possible.

Myton School can be accessed via a number of cycle lanes, and we have covered and lockable bicycle sheds on site for students/staff to keep their bikes secure during the day (an additional lock should also be used). We run Bikeability Cycle Training courses for our Year 7 students, teaching them advanced cycling skills, including how to negotiate and ride safely on more complex roads, and how to ride alongside other cyclists. We will be arranging annual DR. Bike and BikeRegister Bike Marking sessions so that students can have their bikes checked and get advice on how to maintain their bikes. During these sessions an experienced Dr Bike mechanic can make on-the-spot minor adjustments, advise on any maintenance issues, security mark bikes and upload them on to the national Bike Registry database.
