LOCATION The village of Fen Drayton lies approximately nine miles from the university City of Cambridge, for history, art and culture, restaurants and shops. Five miles from St Ives, an historic market town, and nine miles to Huntingdon train station. The village itself is very picturesque with the High Street being the centre, home to a quaint thatched pub and a short walk to the RSPB nature reserve, Fen Drayton Lakes, well known for wetland birds.
The guided bus stops within the nature reserve and takes passengers to Cambridge along what was previously the railway line; this service also continues to Addenbrookes hospital and west bound to St Ives.
From the small but successful Primary school, children then progress to Swavesey Village College, rated outstanding by Ofsted.
