As part of our commitment to the environment we are very keen to promote sustainable travel to and from the school site. Mangrove Road is narrow and prone to becoming congested at peak times.


In order to keep our students safe, the car park gates are closed from 0810 until 1545. Students should not be dropped off or picked up from the school site at the start and end of the day. Instead they should walk to an alternative location such as the London Road car park (11 minute walk) where there is sufficient space to allow safe pick up and drop off. 


Please do not drop students off in Mangrove Road or attempt to turn around in the entrance to the school: this puts our students in danger and prevents access to the school site.

Access to the car park between 0810 and 1545 will be restricted to staff, visitors and those granted a special access pass. These are generally allocated to students with a blue badge, Primary parents with a blue badge, or students with short term mobility issues.

Before 0810 parents may drive through the car park and drop students off, but we operate a no waiting policy at this time. Space in the car park is limited and is reserved for staff working on site.

Please note that there is no parking on site for sixth form students.


For students travelling to school by train, there are a variety of dedicated season tickets that they can apply for through Greater Anglia. More details can be found on their website and in the attached flyer.
