Our target is to have more than 77% of students travelling to school by walking, cycling, bus or train. Currently 30% of students travel by car.
The benefits of walking and cycling or travelling by bus and train are:
If you live less than 2 miles from school why not walk?
Cycling from the Town Centre? Please use the safe off-road cycle route via the Sports Centre funded through the Links to School scheme.Keep your bike safe in the bike sheds!
The bike sheds are closed at 9am and aren't reopened until 3.05pm. If you're ill and need to get your bike out early the sheds can be opened early for you. Don't forget you need to lock your bike when in the sheds.
All school bus users need to have a bus pass which is issued by the County Council before term starts. If you loose your bus pass it costs £5 for a new one.
If you move house and need to catch a different bus to school go to the main office in school and they will give you the appropriate forms to fill in.
If you want to bring a friend home you will have to arrange different transport as the buses only allow those with passes on.
Don't forget that you need to follow the Bus Users Code of Conduct.

Many students get dropped off at the Junior bus bay - this is NOT safe.
If you really need to use the car to travel how about thinking about sharing your lift with someone else making the same journey and use one car instead of two - it helps the environment and saves money!
