The Academy is situated in the village of Heamoor to the northwest of Penzance.

There are a variety of transport arrangements used by students to get to Mounts Bay Academy, either by their own arrangements or organised transport.

You are advised to plan ahead. Check where the bus stops are and the pickup and drop off times? Walk, ride or drive the route in advance to check how long the journey takes?
