Travelling to and from School

 

Our school is located close to the southern boundary of the London Borough of Sutton, at the intersection of two busy roads, Woodcote Road and Woodmansterne Lane.   Like most other schools we have serious congestion problems in the morning, when students and staff are arriving, and in the afternoon when they leave.   We are always seeking to minimise these problems in a way which takes account of the safety of everyone in the School and the interests of our neighbours.   Please take the time to read the information which follows and then decide how best to travel to school.

 

Public Transport

 

The nearest railway station to the School is Wallington, which is approximately ¾ mile to the north, near Wallington town centre.

 

The School is well-served by buses, the following routes stop immediately outside the front entrance:

*      The 612 and 627 special school services only run in the early morning and afternoon and do not run during school holidays, public holidays or at weekends.   Please use them or we will lose them.   (See timetables detailed below or at the bus stop outside the School main entrance – these timings are subject to change).   Other services, which stop at or close to the main cross-roads at Wallington, within walking distance of the School, are  151,  154,  157,  410  and  455.   These serve all parts of the London Borough of Sutton and parts of the London Boroughs of Croydon and Merton.

Arriving by Car

 

As a school, we encourage students to walk, cycle or use public transport for both health and environmental reasons, and to alleviate the serious congestion we experience around the school.

 

Where there is no alternative to driving, parents must understand that no parking spaces are available at the school for picking up or dropping off.

j0310934

 

 

Parents must not bring vehicles onto any part of the premises to either drop-off, pick-up or turn.  
This is to ensure the safety of students and staff alike.   Parents should stop well away from the busy junction outside the School.   Parking is restricted on most roads close by and we would ask that the amenities of our neighbours are respected by not parking across drives or on the private access roads to the flats adjoining the school in Woodcote Road.

 

Drop-Off Point

Please use Woodmansterne Road or any side road as a drop-off or collection point.   Woodcote Road is a very busy road, which is closely monitored by the Transport Police and Sutton Council.
