How to find us

St Brendan's is located in Brislington on the A4 ring road connecting Bristol and Bath. Students come from over 70 different schools and 5 counties to study here so we've mastered our transportation methods to ensure you have a smooth journey to the campus.

Transport methods

There are several schemes in place to help you travel to the College as the College is very keen to reduce it's carbon footprint. We recognise that travel may be a barrier to attending St Brendan's which is why we have invested in the following transport methods:

  • College coach - which includes all coach routes!
  • First bus ticket
  • Exclusive bus route (SB1 & SB2)
  • Train travel - You can take a train from your local station to Temple Meads or Keynsham and then hop on one of the regular buses to the College.
