Parking outside any school at drop-off and pick-up time can be a problem, but not if you follow the rules.
The main rules are the same for any school:
- be mindful of children
- park safely, considerately and legally
- be mindful of the local community
The areas that are not safe, considerate or legal are:
- the zig-zag lines outside the school
- double yellow lines
- outside the school gate
- across the drives of our neighbours
- in the drives of our neighbours
Traffic wardens patrol the roads outside school and will issue fines. They will not accept excuses such as:
- I will only be a minute
- I am not parking, just dropping my child off
- I am running late
The rule that is different for our school is:
- the voluntary one-way system
To ease the flow of traffic, we operate a voluntary one-way system.
To use the one-way system, go past Southcote Rise, turn right into Orchard Close, turn right into Westcote Rise and turn right into Southcote Rise. You will pass the school on your left-hand side, as you are driving up the hill. The one-way system is this way round so that you do not have to cross traffic driving down past Southcote Rise.
Please be aware, this system is only followed by us and not the local community or the bus-service.
Parking in Manor Road
There is residents' only parking in Manor Road between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Since September 2016, cameras have been in operation outside all schools in Hillingdon as a deterrent for parking on zig-zag lines, on double yellow lines, on corners, and outside school gates. Tickets and fines have been and will continue to be issued.
