Dropping Off Pupils at School
The routine designated dropping off area for pupils is the lay-by on Kings Road and using the mini-roundabout as a turning circle. Parents/carers are not to drop off pupils beyond the school gates as this area can become very congested and parking spaces are at a premium. If your child has particular access needs then alternative arrangements can be made with the school.
Hampshire County Council is responsible for providing assistance with transport to school for children living in the local authority administrative area. This service is currently delivered on their behalf by Xelabus, who provide several routes from catchment areas direct to Kings’ School.
If your child uses school transport (including public transport) both they and you (the parent/carer) are agreeing to the Home to School Code of Conduct (link) which outlines expected standards of behaviour and safety onboard school transport.
For all enquiries for ‘Catchment’ buses please click the link below for more information from Hampshire County Council.
