Travel to School

At Faraday, we take sustainable travel seriously and encourage pupils, staff and visitors to walk, take bikes/scooters and use public transport wherever possible. 

Public Transport

The nearest stations are East India DLR and Canning Town, which are both a 15 minute walk away.  These stations provide excellent access to Canary Wharf, the City and beyond. 

Bus D3 terminates on Orchard Place, which is approximately 150 metres from the school.

There are numerous bus routes nearby and the TFL journey planner is useful.  Journey Planner.

Parking and Drop-off

There is no parking on site, but we operate a car drop zone to ensure that children arrive at school safely.  Cars are not allowed to wait at this zone for extended periods and must move on as soon as children have exited/entered the vehicles.

School Bus

Faraday operates a school bus. This follows four routes in the morning and two routes in the afternoon once clubs finish.  There is an additional fee for the bus.  For more details, please visit here or call 0208 965 7374.

Route map


The 'Predator' ferry service is a private charter, owned by Thames Clippers, whose head office is based at Trinity Buoy Wharf.  The ferry is not open to the public, but Faraday school children are allowed to cross the river between North Greenwich Pier and Trinity Buoy Wharf, for a cost of £2. This journey is offered at Thames Clipper's discretion and is only possible if children are accompanied by an adult.  All children must wear a lifejacket, supplied by the private charter.  The Predator runs to a timetabled schedule and can be called by mobile at other times.  The Predator is boarded at either the far left or far right of Greenwich pier, depending on the tide.

We ask children and parents to adhere to health and safety rules at all times.  This includes not waiting for the Predator on the pier at Trinity Buoy Wharf and not entering staff quarters.
