Eaton Bank Academy

Eaton Bank Academy is nearer than you think!

The majority of children attending Eaton Bank Academy walk to school. We actively encourage children to walk to school, whenever it is safe and reasonable for them to do so. This helps them develop a healthy lifestyle and fosters independence. Children often walk in friendship groups and staff are still on hand for them even as they walk down Jackson Road.

For those travelling from further afield, the catchment area for Eaton Bank Academy includes a large swathe of rural Cheshire… Cheshire East Council will arrange transport for those in catchment areas who live more than three miles from the school.


For those living less than three miles from the school or not within the Cheshire East Catchment there are presently two commercial bus services operating which deliver students directly to the door at Eaton Bank.

If you have any questions regarding transport to Eaton Bank Academy, please contact Mrs Whitehurst
