The site is a campus of 8 separate buildings, which students and staff move between throughout the day. For the safety of all, we do not allow vehicle movement.
Parents must not drive onto the school site between 8.10am and 3.50pm, except in emergencies (eg., if school contacts you to say that a pupil has been taken ill and needs to go home).
If you are attending for a meeting during the above times, or if you wish to visit school for other reasons, please use the public car park nearby on Rock Street. Please consider our neighbours and refrain from parking in residents only car parking areas or on double yellow lines.
Notice to Parents – Major Drainage Works, Monday 25th March 2019
We have been advised by the Highways Department that due to major drainage works taking place, part of Horsedge Street will be closed from Monday 25th March 2019 for approximately six weeks. The road will be closed from the side of Madhlo down towards Rock Street. The footpath, which is currently closed for building works on the Madhlo side, will remain closed. However, the footpath on the opposite side of the road, outside the pharmacy, will remain open.
It is possible that further traffic management will be required on Egerton Street, with 3-way traffic lights operating on the mini roundabout outside school. However we are hoping that this work, if necessary, can take place during the Easter holidays.
We have received the attached Travel Information from ABTA in relation to Brexit which may affect pupils who are partaking in school trips abroad. This information is passed on in good faith and is subject to change. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for any incorrect guidance contained in this document.
