Walking / Cycling

An active lifestyle is at the core of School life and there are many students who walk, scoot and cycle to School. The inner-School campus is pedestrian-friendly and vehicle-free to allow students, staff and visitors to walk around School safely and efficiently. Cycle parking facilities are available outside the Netball courts and near Holden Hall, and scooter parks are available in the Junior School playground to encourage sustainable travel for younger pupils and siblings when accompanying those walking to School.
