King’s Locations

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.

In the centre of Macclesfield, our Cumberland Street site (SK10 1DA) serves both King's Boys’ Division and Sixth Form. Half a mile to the east, our Fence Avenue site (SK10 1LS) houses King's Girls’ Division, plus our Infant & Junior Division.

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:

Our Transport Coordinator in the Finance Department will be pleased to explain booking arrangements. Please call 01625 260010.

Public Transport

The school is also well served by the local bus services and by the railway. Both railway and bus stations are within a ten minute walk from the school sites. 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.
