Travel to School

Crown Street Primary School is located on Silvercroft Street in the New Jackson neighbourhood which is accessed from Great Jackson Street off the A56 in Manchester City Centre (you can use the postcode M15 4ZB or find the school using What3Words.

There are wayfinding posts and maps around the neighbourhood, and you can easily find us nestled between the Elizabeth Tower and The Blade. Signage is in place to direct children in the Early Years Pre-School and Reception classes, and pupils for other year groups.  Visitors should use the Main Entrance and report to the school reception.

Parking in the neighbourhood is limited, parents will not be able to drive up to the school building and so we recommend public transport, walking, scooting and cycling to get to school.

Walking, cycling or scooting

An active lifestyle is at the core of school life and many pupils walk, scoot and cycle to school. Storage facilities are available in the public spaces and directly outside the school entrance near the Early Years outdoor space.

There are crossing facilities on the Chester Road roundabout and other main junctions in the area, and there is a footbridge across the A57 Mancunian Way providing a link between Crown Street and Jackson Crescent.

The public spaces around the school are pedestrianised and vehicle-free to allow pupils, staff and visitors to walk around neighbourhood safely.

Transport for Greater Manchester’s Bee Network has extensive cycling routes near the school.
