Pupils who cycle to school should ideally have passed their Cycling Proficiency Test. Bicycles should be clearly marked, padlocked and kept in the place allocated in the cycle shed. (The school cannot, however, be responsible for their safety). Pupils may not cycle in the school grounds. We strongly recommend that all pupils who cycle to school wear a safety helmet.

If you bring your daughter to school, or collect her from school by car, please do not park or wait on Woods Avenue or use our gates as a turning area as we take the safety of our pupils extremely seriously. If you arrive early to pick up, please wait in the local public car parks which are a short and safe walk away from the school: Asda AL10 0JP; Links Drive AL10 8TZ or opposite Sir Philip Howard School.
Parents may use the drop-off area at the front of the school to drop-off their daughters in the morning. There is strictly no waiting or parking in this area as coaches also need access. For afternoon pick up please agree a safe meeting point with your daughter such as one of the local public carparks.
