Transport

If your child comes to school by car, you must not drive into either the Main School or Bede House car parks. Also, please do not drop or pick up on Oatlands Drive itself – use the side roads instead. If you visit the school, you must only park where permitted – not in places where double yellow lines indicate “No Parking”.

If your child wishes to cycle to school, permission should be sought from their Head of Year. Make sure that their bicycle is safe and properly maintained and in winter they should wear safety armbands so that they can be seen by drivers. It is strongly advised that they wear a safety helmet. The school cannot be responsible for their bicycle while it is on school premises and you are advised to have it insured.

Update on Proposed Bus Routes – July 2016

Updated 21st September 2016

The application process for transport into school for 2016/2017 is now open. For those of you wishing to apply please contact the individual operators by email. They will process your application and supply the necessary bus passes for travel on their coaches. If you wish to discuss any of the above or have further questions relating to the bus routes these queries should be directed to the individual companies. If your child will be using a service bus such as Transdev, as far as we are aware these services will not be affected.

Students traveling from Leeds areas can apply for their bus passes from Generation M www.generationm.co.uk.  Their telephone number is 0113 348 1122.
