This is the number that parents can call to track all of the routes, and to pass a message on to the bus driver if necessary.

By Rail

St Chris is located close to Letchworth Garden City station, which is on the London to Cambridge railway line and is served by fast trains from both cities, with many children either commuting on a daily basis or becoming weekly boarders.

A school bus runs each day to Letchworth railway station to meet the Cambridge train and to Hitchin station to meet the London train, so children are brought directly to school.

Trains from London St Pancras to Hitchin take just 33 minutes.
