SGS Sixth

Travel

SGS Sixth is based in the heart of Filton, South Gloucestershire. Our campus is dynamic, diverse and an exciting place to be. With direct bus and train routes serving the vibrant city of Bristol one way and the edge of the Cotswolds the other.

Cycling

The Concorde Way cycle path gets it's name from the supersonic airliner that was built across the road from SGS Sixth and, fittingly, landed here after it's final voyage. The cycle route, a collection of traffic-free paths and minor roads provides a safe cycling route. The route also benefits from passing Filton Abbeywood train station for combined bike/rail journeys. SGS has a secure area available to students to lock up bikes.
