King’s Location

One of the special things about King's is its semi-rural setting, which offers enormous advantages over city sites. As well as having our own wildlife meadow and extensive sports facilities, the town of Macclesfield is a historic market town on the edge of the Peak District and fringed by hills, villages, forests and canals.

The King's campus is on Alderley Road, Prestbury, SK10 4SP and is home to our Infant & Junior Division, Senior and Sixth Form Divisions. It is less than 4 miles to Alderley Edge, 1.3 miles to Prestbury village, 2.3 miles to Macclesfield train station, 6 miles to Wilmslow town centre and 8 miles to Congleton town centre. 

Bus Services 

The school has a number of bus routes which bring pupils from a range of geographical areas to and from both sites. Details of routes and contact information for the bus companies is below:

Public Transport

The school is also well served by the local bus services and by the railway. Both railway and the main bus station are served by a minibus service to the school site. Train journey times are quick and convenient e.g. Prestbury 4 minutes, Congleton 9 minutes, Poynton 10 minutes, Bramhall 13 minutes, Cheadle Hulme 16 minutes, Stockport and Stoke 20 minutes, Manchester Piccadilly 28 minutes.
