Transport to School & Parking

Student parking spaces are at a premium.  We encourage all Sixth Formers, who live close to the School, to continue to use public transport, bicycle or walk to school.


Students in Year 13 may choose to drive to School. However, very limited parking is available for Sixth Form students on the Uplyme Field car park.

Year 12 students who pass their test should not consider driving to school until June when they will be advised how to apply for a parking permit. They will be allocated a parking bay & will able to park in Uplyme once Year 13 have finished their exams. A parking permit will be issued by Resources, upon receipt of payment and evidence of a Driving Licence (not certificate of passing test). The cost of the Permit is £120 per year from end of June of Year 12 to after Year 13 exams in June the following year; reducing to £80 after Christmas and £40 after February Half Term.  Permits are given out on a “first come, first served” basis, with Year 12 students only allowed to park on site once the Year 13 have left school after exams. It is a privilege to park on-site and not automatic as there are not enough spaces for all Year 12 students. Sixth Form parking permits must be clearly displayed on the dashboard at all times.

The School cannot accept responsibility for students driving their own cars or for passengers choosing to have a lift from a friend.  Drivers should be aware of any insurance restrictions.  The School reserves the right to request parents to stop their son driving to school should we witness dangerous or careless use of a vehicle. Car drivers are strongly urged to protect their car with an anti-theft device and not to have expensive stereos or valuables on display. The School accepts no responsibility for damage, loss or theft. 


Students may secure their bicycles in the bike shed on the school site at their own risk. They must ensure security precautions are taken when leaving bicycles.


All students, whether travelling on a school bus or public service bus, must always behave well. Poor behaviour on any type of public transport will not be tolerated; pupils and parents are reminded that travel on school buses is a privilege that can be withdrawn.

Any queries involving bus passes should be directed to the Transport Office at Buckinghamshire County Council on 01296 387439.  If your son loses his bus pass, he must go to the School Office, who will issue a temporary pass.  Parents are asked to organise replacement bus passes directly with the Transport Office. 

If your son misses his bus after school, he should go to the School Office to make a telephone call or to borrow money so he can get home.
