Travelling to and from School

Students may cycle to school, provided that the school has been notified, the required bicycle authorisation form is completed and approval given by the Student Manager.  The wearing of cycle helmets is compulsory.  Bicycles must be parked as directed. Property is left in the bike store at the student's discretion and the school cannot take any responsibility for damage.

Travelling to School by Car
Parking on site for parents, carers and students is not permitted. In the interests of the safety of all our students, parents dropping or collecting children, or waiting in cars, should do so away from the school entrance gates during the following times due to the heavy movement of public transport on site;

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
8:15 - 9:00am and 3:15 - 4:00pm

8:15 - 9:00am and 2:15 - 3:00pm

School staff will be present before and after school to ensure students are arriving and leaving the site calmly and safely.

Transport and the Schools Responsibility
Please note that the school is not responsible for any external travel company and you will need to liaise with them directly regarding any costs.  All buses/coaches are private companies and as such the school can only communicate with them in the same manner as parents.

We are always happy to support parents/carers with travel issues, however, we have no say over routes or services. Parents and carers remain responsibile for the behaviour of their child on the vehicles.
