How to get to the college:

The college is a two minute walk from Southend East rail station where modern trains run every ten to fifteen minutes towards Southend Central, Westcliff, Chalkwell, Leigh-on-Sea, Benfleet, Pitsea, Basildon and further afield onto Upminster, Barking, West Ham and London Fenchurch Street.

Southend Victoria is also within walking distance and trains on this line call at Prittlewell, Rochford, Hockley, Rayleigh, Wickford, Billericay, Shenfield and onto Romford, Ilford, Stratford and London Liverpool Street. This service is every 15 minutes in the day, or twice an hour in the evenings.

Bus stops for the college are located on Woodgrange Drive or Southchurch Road, both of which are within five minutes walk of the college.

The college actively promotes cycling and there are covered and secure cycling stands within the college grounds. Lookers can also be provided to store your cycling gear in whilst at college.

Car Sharing
The college is keen to promote car sharing as a way of travelling to and from the site, especially as many learners come from a relatively small, and local, catchment area.
