We are a school that inspires; with learning set in a global context and young people encouraged to experience learning beyond the boundaries of the classroom.

Parking Issues

We would like to remind parents about the need for considerate parking near our school. We do have complaints about people who park in ‘residents only’ parking places or block access for residents. There have also been concerns about parents’ parking in the back streets which blocks access to residents’ garages. Please bear this in mind if you drop off/pick up children in a vehicle. Thank you for your cooperation.
