Travel Sustainably

If you are travelling to our school, please consider using Sustainable Transport.  There are a number of bus services which you can use to get to school. There are cycle routes around school.
Remember if you arrive by a bicycle or scooter, please park properly just inside the gates. Please travel safe too – wear a helmet and wear something bright. If you arrive by car, remember not to park on the yellow and white lines around school. Please park with consideration for our neighbours. You could Park and Stride from Eaton Farm and the Co-op too.
