School travel advice


Most schools in the borough have excellent walking links with formal crossing points on key routes. 

You can also benefit by registering with the Eco Rewards scheme if you are walking to and from school.


In Bracknell Forest we are lucky to have a network of safe, traffic free cycling routes that connect much of the borough. Plan your journey to school using our cycle route map.

‘Bikeability’ cycle training is offered to primary school children and is arranged by each school.


Visit our page about buses to see if public transport could be a solution for you. Most operators offer child and student fares.


If you are 16 to 17 years old, for just £30, you can get up to 50% off rail fares with a 16 to 17 saver railcard.

  • Owlsmoor Primary School:
    • zebra crossing on Cambridge Road
