The schools will depend on the quarters area you live in - Emerson's Green, Pilning and Stoke Park are in South Gloucestershire; Keynsham is in Bath and North East Somerset and Long Ashton is in North Somerset.
Transport and Travel
The area is served by excellent motorways - M4 for London to South Wales travel and the M5 for south west to the Midlands. Transport links from the quarters to DE&S Abbey Wood is congested - an early start is recommended and car sharing (on the A4174) from Emerson's Green and Keynsham will reduce the journey time by half. You can cycle from quarter areas to work but Long Ashton and Keynsham are approximately 12 miles away (the area is blessed with excellent cycle paths but cyclist unaware drivers when you have to travel on the road!) Emerson's Green is approximately 5 miles away and is runable. Car parking at DE&S Abbey WOod is a nightmare with limited spaces.
There is a railway station at Filton Abbey Wood (with a side gate allowing access into the site) next to DE&S Abbey Wood and also Bristol Parkway station is approximately 1km from the main site.
