- Car – If you are planning to drive your child to school, please be aware that there is very limited parking space at the front of the school. Please consider dropping your child nearby, so they can walk the last few hundred metres to school. If you do park on Park Avenue, please park considerately and avoid blocking driveways and entrances for those who live near the school. Please be mindful that it is a busy road at the start and end of the school day, with a number of buses also dropping off and collecting pupils.
- Bus – There are a number of buses that support the school, some provided by Bridgend Council and some privately run. For information on whether or not your child is eligible to free transport please contact reception in school in the first instance. We will also be able to provide details of the companies who run the private services.
- Bike – A small number of pupils do cycle to school and there is a bike shelter for their use near A block. It is important that bikes are locked securely on the school grounds, (the best way is to lock the bike frame and rear wheel to the bike rack and to make sure that the lock is facing the ground). Students cycling to school should ensure that they are dressed appropriately (including bright clothing and a helmet) and that their bike is regularly maintained to ensure safety. Students must cycle sensibly and have regard for other users of roads and pathways. Students are not allowed to ride their bikes anywhere on the school site.
- On foot – Please ensure your child is familiar with a safe route to school and in bad weather that they are appropriately dressed. Many parents/carers choose to practice the route with their child during the summer holidays prior to joining us.
Safety is extremely important when travelling to and from the school by any means of transport. If your child is walking or cycling to school, please ensure that they are aware of the pedestrian crossings locally and the safest routes to school.
Your child is representing the school on the way to and from school and our uniform is recognisable. Therefore, please ensure that your child is aware of their conduct when travelling to and from school.
