Bus transport for students is arranged by the Local Education Authority. Students in Years 7 – 11 whose homes are three or more miles from the school and in the school’s designated catchment area are currently entitled to free transport. Free transport is available for secondary school students from low income families to one of the three nearest qualifying schools where they live more than two miles, but not more than six miles. Students qualify on the grounds of free school meals or where parents are in receipt of maximum level Working Families Tax Credit. Please note that a new application has to be made each year. For further information parents should contact the Social & Education Transport Team at the County Council.

Subject to the availability of seats, children who travel from Hemingford Grey, can purchase tickets from the Local Education Authority, for the Hemingford Service.

When students bring cycles into school, they should observe road safety rules and maintain their brakes and lights frequently during the winter months. Helmets are strongly recommended. Bicycles can be left in the racks provided for cycles in the school grounds. They are left at the owner’s risk and students should lock them and remove possessions from them. The police inspect the bikes from time to time. Riding of cycles in the school grounds is not allowed. Students should not leave their bikes at the Leisure Centre.

If you bring your child to school by car, please do not bring the car on to the premises. The best place to drop your child off is in the Leisure Centre car park, to avoid congestion in the streets around the school. Please do not drop off your child at the roundabout at the top of High Leys. Visitors cars are not allowed onto site between 8.10 and 9.00am in the morning and between 2.45 and 3.30pm in the afternoon.
