Getting to PCSA
Priory Community School, Academy Trust is located in Worle, on the north of the Queensway nearby the retail park. Many of our students get to and from school actively - walking, cycling, by bus or car-sharing.
We want PCSA to be a fit and healthy school, making more sustainable journeys and contributing less to local congestion, so we’ve been working with North Somerset Council and Sustrans on the Active Travel to Schools Project to encourage sustainable travel.
Students who cycle can leave their bikes in secure storage at the school. There are regular Dr Bike sessions, so pupils can get their bikes checked and simple repairs for free.
Journey planners are available online for cyclists:
There is free level 3 Bikeability training to support students to ride safely and competently on roads. For more information about the training, go to www.bikeability.dft.gov.uk/the-three-levels/level-3/
to find out about training opportunities in North Somerset.
A number of different buses come to the school. Many of them drop off and pick up on the Queensway.

Some parents find it convenient to drop off/collect their children on their travels and are happy to car share with other families. It is a good way of reducing costs and congestion.
