Arriving at School

The safety of our students is paramount, please observe the following:

  • Students must enter the school from the bus bays or the main steps. 
  • Students must not climb over the wall from the main road, walk across the grass or climb the fences. 
  • Students must not walk through the Staff Car Park.
  • Buses will be disembarked in the lower bus bay and students will then make their way via the path into school by an official entrance.  
  • Students arriving by car should be dropped off away from the main gate to avoid congestion at the entrance.
  • Cars transporting students must not be driven into the Staff Car Park unless the school has issued a permit for welfare reasons.
