How to get to us

As a local school, over 90% of our families live within a 3 miles radius of the school. We urge Channing families to walk to School or use public transport where possible to reduce congestion around beautiful Highgate and encourage healthy habits. Public parking is limited around School and the School is very well served by public transport.

We recommend the Citymapper app or the journey planner at to help plan your trip to and from School – here are some popular Channing routes:


London Underground: Archway and Highgate Station (Northern Line)
Overground: Highbury & Islington + 263 bus, Upper Holloway + 263 or walk (15 mins), Gospel Oak + C11 bus


Above you can see a map of the main bus routes serving the School or within a few minutes walk to the School. To use the map, toggle the legend in the top left-hand corner of the map and select which bus route you wish to see by ticking/unticking the routes. These are the most common routes used by our current students but other routes can be found on this map.
