Finding our school
(download this map by clicking on the link below)
Somercotes Infant and Nursery School is situated in the village of Somercotes near Alfreton in Derbyshire.
It is surrounded by Somerlea Park and is on Nottingham Road which is the main shopping area in the village.
The nearest bus stops are on Nottingham Road and at the Market Place. Click here to see the bus routes around our school.
Although our postal address is Nottingham Road, there is no parking and access to school on this road. You access school via a very narrow School Lane. Vehicle access is via the village car park on the Market Place on Nottingham Road, where there is ample parking. The school car park is strictly for staff use, and should not be used by the parents at any time.
A footpath runs down the School Lane for access to all of the Infant and Nursery School via the pedestrian security gates.
Parking and Safety
Clearly traffic and parking around the school can present a serious safety hazard for children. We ask all parents to drive and park responsibly in the local area and follow the parking restriction notices in the area.
