How to get to Collingwood College

From the A1(M) heading South

Take the A690 turning signposted Durham. Continue straight on across the first roundabout take the left turn across the bridge. Continue along this road through five sets of traffic lights. Collingwood College is the third turning on the left hand side.

From the A1(M) heading North

Take the A177 turning signposted Bowburn and Peterlee. This is the junction with the Durham RoadChef Services area. The sign for Durham will urge you stay on the A1(M) for another junction. While this would not be a disaster, it is definitely a longer route and is likely to involve more traffic hold-ups. Take the A177 exit from the roundabout (2nd turning), signposted Bowburn. The road will take you through Bowburn village and on to Shincliffe village. Follow the road for about 4 miles until it reaches a roundabout and take the first exit. You will pass the University Science site on the left and reach a set of traffic lights. Turn left at these lights and proceed up the hill. Collingwood College is the third left turn, which is just after the hill flattens out.

From the A167

Take the turning signposted Durham at the roundabout where the A167 and A177 meet.  Follow the A177 towards the City Centre and, after approximately 1 mile, turn right into Collingwood College.
