Transport – Getting to School

By Car

We expect all girls being brought by car to enter the School from Station Road (from 8.10am).  The Station Road entrance is only open at the beginning and end of the day for security reasons.

Please do not ‘drop’ girls in Cheltenham Road before 10.00 am.  The parking restrictions do not allow for this.  Check carefully the parking restrictions on both these roads and please do not wait at 3.45 pm in the coach stopping areas on Cheltenham Road.

Please do not park on the double yellow lines or on the hazard lines in front of the school.  In doing so you put the safety of the pupils at risk.

Please do not use the former Uplands privately owned forecourt for parking or as a turning point

There are now cameras monitoring the bus lane from 7.00 am to 10.00 am and 4.00 pm to 6.30 pm.

By Bus

Girls may enter the school from Cheltenham Road pupil entrance (from 7.30am) or from Station Road (from 8.10am).  The Station Road entrance is only open at the beginning and end of the day for security reasons.

The following public bus services stop directly outside the school U1, U2, 70 / 570, 73 / 573 / X73, 82 / 582, 584, 75 /75A /575, 76 / 77.

Visit Wessex Buses and First Buses for more information.

Bicycles

Bicycles may be left during school hours in the appropriate place.  They are left at the owner’s risk as the school’s insurance does not cover the theft or damage to bicycles.  Form tutors should be informed of anyone cycling regularly to school.  Pupils are not allowed to bring micro scooters to school.

Cars, Motorcycles and Mopeds

The school strongly discourages pupils bringing cars to school.  Parking is limited for staff and visitors to the school so pupils are not allowed under any circumstances to park their motorised vehicles in either of the school car parks.  Parking is available in the streets surrounding the school but some have time restrictions so pupils must make sure they have taken this into account.

By Train

Montpelier Station is very close to the school on Station Road. Trains stopping here travel between Bristol Temple Meads Station and Severn Beach.

By School Coach

School coaches bring pupils to school from a wide area around Bristol. They are organised by parents. Please direct your enquiries to the company not the school.
