Important notice re car park users between 15-28 February

Fri 31 January 2020

The school has informed us that owing to essential electrical works being carried out between 15th and 28th February, there will be sections of the car park that cannot be used. These out of bound areas should be apparent when you arrive at the car park.

The normal traffic system for vehicles entering and exiting the school will be temporarily changed as well, meaning the road normally used for exiting (furthest away from the exit) will be closed. During the period the works are carried out, please take care as this means the entry road will become both the entry and exit road.

Lastly, during the period of works, **the no parking restriction in the area immediately outside the sports hall will be temporarily lifted **so this area can also be used for parking.
