Further Travel Information

If you can, please consider whether you can walk or cycle – it can be a safe and healthy way to make shorter trips. With new cycling and walking routes popping up across the region, it is safer and easier than ever to get about on foot or by bike.

If you do need to drive, please do not drive onto the site, and park well away from the school crossing points and driveway to ensure we can keep our students and staff safe.
