Safety When Travelling
Please remember to take care when travelling, particularly when crossing roads. Other road users may not see you, particularly in bad weather or when it is dark. If in doubt always wait to see whether a car or bicycle has seen you rather than assume that they have. Use reflective strips on bags and coats to help yourself to be seen.
1. Public Transport
There are a range of direct bus services stopping within close vicinity of the school. Further details of routes and timetables can be obtained using the links below.
The nearest stations are Fishersgate and Portslade which are 1.2 and 2 km from the school respectively. Both are on the same line but Porstslade has more frequent trains to some destinations. Information about the stations and timetables can be obtained from these links: Portslade, Fishersgate
4. Cycling / Scooters
Cycling to school is also encouraged and there are various local cycle routes in and around Portslade. The topography is slightly hilly but the local roads provide quiet routes along which to cycle. The school provides cycle racks, however it is students' responsibility to provide a lock and secure their cycle or scooter - we recommend a "D-lock". The school does not take responsibility for any loss, damage or theft.
Students are reminded to ensure that their cycles are roadworthy and that they ensure they are visible to other road users by using lights and high visibility clothing. Helmets should be worn.
The school travel plan can be viewed here. The full document and appendices can be viewed in the school reception.
Letter to Local Authority
The school has written to the Local Authority in support of the extension of the 20mph zone near the school and to request a re-assessment of the need for road crossings. The letter can be read here.
