St Chris is conveniently located in Letchworth Garden City, just off the A1(M) and on a major train line between London and Cambridge. We also run an extensive school bus service.

School Bus Routes

School buses run from North London (Highgate or Cockfosters), St Albans and Harpenden, Welwyn Garden City and Hadley Wood with several stops en route. There is also a bus from Hitchin railway station to meet trains from London, Cambridge and Peterborough.

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 Hitchin station to meet the London, Cambridge and Peterborough trains, so children are brought directly to school.
