Travel by Car
There are a small number of car parks available on campus, but due to the School operation, size and being in the heart of Stockport Green Belt – spaces cannot be guaranteed. View a map of CHS car parks here.
Lots of planning goes on behind the scenes to anticipate congested times and several protocols are in place to welcome visitors, accommodate the different needs of parents, staff and students, and manage weekend sports and events throughout the week.
- For organised visits, please use the Claremont Road entrance (postcode SK8 6EG). Parking is available at the front of our Main Building, including accessible spaces.
- For driving pupils to School, please use the drop-off area at the School Lane entrance (use postcode SK8 6EF) and make use of the park and walk spaces. This area becomes congested at peak times and we ask that everyone be patient and considerate to others. Alternatively there is a drop-off and pick-up zone at our Gym Car Park off Claremont Road.
- For sports fixtures, please use the School Lane entrance. Parking is limited during the School day so you may need to park off-campus and walk in. There are council-run car parks 9 minutes’ walk away on Mellor Road (SK8 5AZ) and 8 minutes’ walk away on Church Road / Woods Lane (SK8 7JU).
The School values a good relationship with its neighbours and if you do need to park in the streets surrounding the School, we ask that you do so responsibly and with respect for residents’ access requirements.
The School campus has a 5 mph speed limit, please adhere to this speed limit in car park areas at all times.
CHS Car Share
Where possible we encourage anyone coming to School to share lifts; it's a great way to "buddy up" and make new friends. Car-sharing is also economical, good for the environment and could significantly reduce traffic congestion - resulting in shorter journeys for everyone.
Car-sharing is simply when two or more people share a car and travel together. It can be as formal or informal as you like. We operate a pupil/parent scheme as well as a separate staff scheme. Pupils cannot travel with staff as part of the scheme.
Only you can decide who you are happy to travel with. It is advisable to check all the legal driving documents, such as driving licence, car insurance, MOT and car tax, whether you know the driver or not.
Park & Stride
Park up or drop off/pick up at the Hesketh (SK8 6JZ) between 8-8.40am and 2.45-3.45pm. Enjoy the benefits avoiding the congestion and the short walk along Hulme Hall Road to the school crossing at the junction with Claremont Road.
