KES has a long tradition of attracting pupils from a very wide geographical area and it is fortunate in the range of public transport, train and bus, that makes the School accessible. So, boys are able to commute easily from Lichfield, Wolverhampton, Walsall, Bromsgrove, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield.
The School is situated near many bus routes (the 61 and 63 bus services run frequently from the city centre and Northfield along the Bristol Road) and it is within easy walking distance of the University railway station. Two buses stop at the school itself – the National Express* 1S bus to and from Solihull and the Endeavour bus to and from Walsall.
The timetable for the Solihull bus service is on the National Express website (select 1S for the timetable).
The Endeavour bus timetable to Walsall is as follows:
|Stop Number||Stop Location||Time|
|1||Mellish Road / Leigh Road||07:15|
|2||Walsall Town Hall||07:25|
|3||Blue Coat CofE Springhill Road||07:30|
|4||Metro Inns Birmingham Road||07:35|
|5||The Bell Birmingham Road||07:40|
|6||Poundland Scott Arms||07:50|
|7||Birchfield Road Masjid||08:05|
|8||KES / KEHS||08.30|
The bus will leave school at 4.15pm (Monday – Thursday) and 3.30pm (Friday).

A number of boys cycle to school and bikes can be locked safely at school in bike racks. It is vital that all who ride bikes wear a helmet and that bikes have good lights front and back in the winter months. We would also recommend the use of a high-visibility jacket.
