MCS is in the centre of Oxford and has excellent transport links. A significant number of pupils walk, cycle and travel by bus or train to school, and we encourage ‘green’ journeys.


Oxford Schools’ Bus Partnership (OSBP)

MCS is part of the Oxford Schools’ Bus Partnership (OSBP), which runs bus services for seven Oxford schools; d’Overbroeck’s, Dragon School, Headington School, MCS, Oxford High School, Rye St Antony and Wychwood School. OSBP aims to provide safe, efficient and reliable routes to school.

For more details, consult routes and timetables, fares and pupil code of conduct.  A list of FAQs can be found here. Booking is via the OSBP website and will be taken for the 2019/20 academic year from 28 May 2019.

Pupils can also travel to school by train. Oxford railway station is a 20-30 minute walk from MCS and there are frequent bus services. Further details on rail travel can be obtained from National Rail Enquiries.

By Car

Traffic in Oxford can be heavy, especially at peak times. Parking is not normally available at the School, but please do contact us if you need access arrangements. St Clement’s and Union St car parks with limited parking are a short walk away.

Visitors can also use Thornhill Park and Ride which will get you closest to MCS. The Park and Ride bus stops on St Clement’s, five minutes’ walk away from the school.
