Active travel to school and parking

We want to make our school and the surrounding environment happier, healthier and safer. Please consider travelling actively by walking, scooting or cycling to school. 

Attached below is a map which shows a 5 minute walking zone around school that has been tested by pupils to prove that it only takes five minutes!

If you have to travel by car, please park outside the walking zone, with care and consideration for local residents, and walk the rest of the way.

Parking around the local area

If you do need to drive to drop off/pick up your child please be aware that we are based in a residential area.  In particular we ask:

  • Please respect our neighbours driveways and do not park in front of them.
  • Please do not double park to drop your children off at school and block the road.
  • Please can you avoid driving to the top end of Egerton Road.  This area is highly congested with "walking traffic" and it is not safe to manoevre vehicles in this area.  
  • Please note that the carpark that is accessed from Berkeley Road does not belong to the school.  It is the St Bonaventure's Parish car park.  The Parish has always kindly allowed our parents to use the car park for dropping off children and picking, and for coaches for school trips. However at the moment with children entering and leaving the school via the back playground we must ask that you do not use this carpark to ensure the safety of our whole community.  The car park is however open for the use of parishioners, others using the Presbytery and/or the Parish Hall or the Doctor's surgery who pay for the use of their parking spaces - we ask that you please respect our relationship with the Parish by observing these restrictions. Similarly Friary Lane does not belong to us and people with garages on the lane have the right to access their garages at any time.  
  • Please do not drive into or park in the staff car park at any time during the day (this includes before school or to pick up from After School Club).
