Drop Off Arrangements
Early Years students should be escorted to their classroom for drop off.
Year 1 to Year 6 students assemble in the playground and will be escorted to their classroom by their class teacher.
Years 7 to 11 students must wait under the outside covered area until school starts at 7.15, then students must go to their Form classroom for registration. International Baccalaureate (IB) students may go directly to the IB suite when they arrive at school.
Please use the main front entrance for drop off.
Please use the ‘safe bay’ between the two lines
of traffic, so children can disembark from their vehicles into a traffic-free zone. Only school buses can park in the area next to the school perimeter wall. Children should not be leaving the school premises without an adult. Security have been instructed to stop any unaccompanied children from leaving the school site.
Parking areas are situated at the front, side and rear of the school.
