Cycling

The school actively encourages cycling and provides covered bicycle storage and a limited number of helmet lockers. Details are normally announced in the student information sheet in the first week of September. Cyclists have first priority and then any remaining are then allocated to other Year 7 students, on a first come, first served basis.

Car Parking

Car parking is at a premium on the campus. There are four visitor parking bays outside the main Reception; otherwise there may be spaces available in the car park beyond the Sports Centre.

Please do not park on campus to collect children at the end of the school day. You should not park on yellow lines or make U turns in the entrances; please park considerately in the village and do not obstruct residents’ access to their property. The police frequently patrol the village.

Dropping Off Students by Car

You should always drop your child (ren) off outside the campus at a convenient and safe place.

We wish to restrict the number of vehicles entering the campus at this busy time so that all our students remain safe. Please refrain from dropping off or making a U turn in the entrances.

All Parents/Guardians who routinely transport students to and from school are requested to use designated drop-off and pick-up points located away from the centre of the village and in safe locations within walking distance of the school.
