Children are expected to arrive at and depart from school on time. The school operates staggered arrival and departure times as follows:

Form

Form Arrival Registration Departure

Lower 1 8.40am 9.00am 3.30pm

All children based here should arrive at the side gate on Rupert Road between the times shown above. Parents who come to school by car should park in Rupert Road or in a nearby residential road – not on Bath Road. A member of staff will be in attendance at the gate at arrival and departure times and there are CCTV cameras at both entrances to aid security.

16 Newton Grove

Children are expected to arrive at and depart from school on time. The school operates staggered arrival and departure times as follows:

Form Arrival Registration Departure
Forms 2 and 3 8.30am 8.50am 3.40pm
Forms 4, 5 and 6 8.30am 8.50am 3.50pm

Parents coming to Orchard House by car should enter Newton Grove only from South Parade and, when dropping their child at the back entrance in The Orchard, drive down The Orchard only in a southerly direction, i.e. from Bedford Road towards South Parade.

A controlled parking zone is in operation in this area. Please do not risk the safety of everyone by parking or stopping on the zigzags. Parents are asked to park only within marked bays and also to avoid parking close to junctions, as this obstructs the view for pedestrians crossing and other motorists.

In the mornings we always have a member of staff at the back gate and also inside the lower ground floor cloakroom.

Children arriving at school earlier than 8.30am should come to the front door.
