Drop Off & Pick Up Arrangements

Many pupils travel to school on home / school transport provided by the Local Authority. This may be by school bus or taxi. All pupils on school transport have an escort and a transport care plan setting out any particular requirements.

The start and end of the school day can be particularly busy and we would ask that you follow the guidelines set out below.

  • Our school has a no reversing policy
  • Please do not park in the school lane by the garages or block the pedestrian access or pavement.
  • Our neighbours ask that you do not park on the grass verges in Comptons Lane or in the layby adjacent to the mini-roundabout.
  • There are staggered starts for school transport and for parent/carers


School Transport

  • On entering the school site please follow the one way system round to the left
  • There is a queue for minibuses and a queue for taxis which are side by side
  • Pupils will not be collected from the school transport until the barrier is across and all engines have been turned off.
  • Please do not let anyone off the transport until a member of staff has come to collect them.
  • At the beginning and end of the day please do not turn the engine back on until the barrier has been removed.


Parent / Carers

  • Please drop your child promptly at 8.55am so that lessons can start promptly and collect at 3.05am from either the front entrance for senior pupils or the back entrance for primary pupils.
  • Beachcomber pupils are dropped off at 9.10am to staff at the back entrance and collected from the same place at 3.10pm

Sailors pupils are dropped off at 8.55am at the back entrance and collected with school transport at 3.00pm
