Private Cars and Parking
The school car park has very limited parking space and congestion can be severe. Parents are therefore requested to use buses or car sharing if at all possible.
Pupils should be dropped off either in the car park in Thame Lane or in the "drop and go" area, and never on the A415.
Pick up time:
Reception, Primary and Secondary have different times of pick up to release the pressure. Do respect them by not arriving too early and leave reasonably quickly!
In order to ensure children are safe and minimize congestion, observe the following:
In the car park: Please be polite, patient and don't push! Everybody will leave at some point! A bit of courtesy will usually make things go smoothly !
How to arrive and leave Thame Lane:
In order to ease the traffic that is moving out Thame Lane on to the A415, please try and use this simple rule, it really does work:
When you arrive at school from Abingdon direction (3), before turning into Thame Lane, arrive slowly at the junction indicating well in advance to allow one car to exit from the school(1) and one car to go in from Berinfield(2).
See picture above for more details.
This simple rule greatly improves everyone's life and stop the traffic jam on the A415!!
