The Mount School is situated in the beautiful historic city of York. Our 16 acre site is only a short walk from the railway station and the attractions, museums and shops in the city centre.
By Rail - York is a major rail centre; London to York is one of Britain's fastest rail routes at just 1 hour 46 minutes. Edinburgh, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham are similarly linked with high-speed routes. If you are travelling to York by train, The Mount is approximately 10 minutes on foot or 5 minutes by taxi.
By Air - We can be reached from three International Airports: Leeds/Bradford, Newcastle and Manchester. The onward journey to The Mount is under 2 hours from all three. Accessing The Mount from London Heathrow is only a 3 hour journey.
By Car - From the A1M, take the A64 for York and then the A1036 exit (signed York City Centre, Race Course and National Railway Museum). Keep left and follow the signs for City Centre. Take the second exit at the Tesco roundabout and after 1km you will pass the Knavesmire (York Race Course) on your right. 250m further on you will see the Elmbank Hotel on your left, take the left turn at the hotel and the School car park is at the top of the short hill.
