To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we do have areas where you can park bikes and scooters. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely. We do have a limited number of parking permits for Lowbourne Car Park for parents who can evidence essential car use at the start and end of the day. Please enquire at the reception desk.
