GETTING TO SCHOOL
Students in Years 7 and above can ride their bikes to school as long as they wear a helmet and ride in a safe and considerate way both on campus and off. Students must make sure their bikes are roadworthy - including working front and back lights - and they must take responsibility for their bike irrespective of who is riding it. Bikes should be parked in the bike racks provided.
Junior School: parents are asked to use the Main Car Park, which is clearly signposted as you turn into Frensham Heights Road, and walk with your children to and from the Junior School. Some also take advantage of the café that is run in the Aldridge Theatre Foyer first thing in the morning (to coincide with drop off times) and in the afternoons (to coincide with pick up times).
Years 7-13: we operate a one-way system for dropping off and picking up for students. There are a few spaces for limited waiting but please don’t use these for long-term parking. Many parents opt to use the Main Car Park, which is clearly signposted as you turn into Frensham Heights Road. Some also take advantage of the café that is run in the Aldridge Theatre Foyer first thing in the morning (to coincide with drop off times) and in the afternoons (to coincide with pick up times).
Please try to use either the drop-off zone or the Main Car Park, rather than driving up to Main House and the Music School or down to the Studios and Art Centre. This is really to keep as many areas as possible free of cars at a time when many children are out and about on site and when staff are trying to park in the allocated staff areas.
Visitors: please park outside our Main House and head in to the reception to check-in.
BY SCHOOL BUS
School transport is available to students from Year 7 upwards. Parents need to be aware that the buses are unsupervised and operate much like public transport.
The full routes, times and costs can be found below. If you have any queries about the bus routes or to check availability, please contact Liz Bownass-Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Year 5 or 6 children can ride the bus, but only with an older sibling and permission from the Deputy Head, as they will be unchaperoned. If the older sibling is unable to get the bus on one day, the younger sibling will not be able to ride alone.
Every Friday and Sunday, during term time, we run an accompanied coach service to and from Waterloo Station with several stopping points on the way. This service is not available at the start or at the end of each term. Times and stops are listed below but due to the nature of London traffic times may vary on the day.
Students may book journeys by adding their name to the list on the notice board in the exit passageway from the school dining room. Charges are added to the student’s end of term bill. Please note that the school’s standard Terms and Conditions state that the school is not responsible for students’ personal belongings at school or on journeys to and from school. The coach does not run in extreme weather e.g. snow.
