Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate is easily accessible and has easy transport links for day students to commute to school.

Surrounded by beautiful fields and rolling hills, the school is lucky to be located between three cosmopolitan centres of the North: the Viking city of York, the spa town of Harrogate and the cultural city of Leeds.
