The school site becomes very busy at the start and end of each day. Please avoid entering the grounds and find a safe drop off/collection point nearby. If you do enter the site during other times, please be aware of the 5mph speed restriction, only park in designated bays and obey instructions of staff members that are marshalling.
Travelling on Foot
The pedestrian access to school is via Mareham Road and Boston Road.
Boston Road is particularly busy so make sure you cross the road safely and stay visible to traffic.
Travelling by Bicycle
We actively encourage students to arrive to school by bicycle as this is a healthy and environmentally friendly way to travel. Please abide by The Highway Code and be careful when arriving/leaving the busy school site, keeping an eye out for pedestrians and traffic. Bicycle racks are located in the school for storage.
