How to Find us…
Leave the M20 at Exit 9, Ashford. Follow signs to Canterbury/Wye on the A28.
When you join the A28, Wye is approximately 2.5 miles from Ashford. Watch for signs to turn right into Wye.
You will arrive at the Level Crossing at Wye Station. (The level crossing is often closed – please allow an additional 10-15 mins!!). There is a very useful website at and an associated app, which give you an indication of when the crossing will be open and shut, to help you plan your journey.
Cross the Level Crossing and the Bridge and follow the one way system left into Churchfield Way. Turn right at the Church into Church Street and right again at the end into Bridge Street. You are now facing back towards the level crossing.
Go past the school on your left and turn left into the Village Hall Car Park.  Please enter through the electric gate.
From 9am – 3pm all public access to the school is via the Village Hall Car Park.  At other times the school gate on Bridge Street is also open for additional pedestrian access.  There should be NO vehicular traffic on site at any time unless escorted.
The school has a steep drive at the Bridge Street gate so all disabled access is via the Village Hall Car Park gate.  There are two marked disabled parking bays close by.  Entry is via a call point at the gate and although all efforts have been made to make this as accessible as possible there is still some incline at the waiting point and some wheelchair users may need assistance.
