From Monday 21st September, we will only offer grab bags (sandwich, drink and snack) during school lunch. Despite our best efforts to offer a hot meal at lunchtime, we are unable to do so whilst ensuring social distancing measures between year groups are maintained. Year 7, 9, and 10 students should return to school on Tuesday 22nd September. Students from Progress Group 8E should return on 23rd September.

Travelling to school

Blackburn Central High School is located near Royal Blackburn Hospital and is very easy to get to using public transport or car.


Follow signs for Royal Blackburn Hospital from Junction 5 of the M65, or Blackburn town centre. The turning for school is on Haslingden Road, just after the hospital and KFC.


The closest bus stops are Haslingden Road (KFC) and Grimshaw Park (Blackburn Central High School). These are serviced by the 12A and 12C Blackburn circulars, the 481 Blackburn – Bury, and the 22 Shadsworth – Clitheroe Centre. 

Many other bus services stop at the Blackburn Royal Hospital, which is a short walk from school.
