Post Offices no longer sell MetroCard products. Students who buy weekly or monthly School Plus or 16-25 tickets can buy them at over 700 Payzone outlets. Open around 90 hours every week, Payzone shops are the place to add SchoolPlus weekly and monthly as well as discounted 16-25 weekly, monthly and term-time travel products to Young Person’s PhotoCards, Scholar’s PhotoCards and 16-25 PhotoCards. Find your local Payzone outlet by visiting http://www.payzone.co.uk/store-locator 

Travelling by car

In the interests of safety, it is essential that parents and carers do not drive into the school grounds to drop off or pick up their children. Quite simply, with over a thousand pedestrians and up to ten buses arriving and leaving the site simultaneously, this would pose a serious danger. Students must arrange with their parents to pick them up at a safe place outside the school grounds. They must, however, take care not to park near the pedestrian crossing on Farnley Lane, for this is extremely dangerous. Likewise, Prince Henry's Court (adjacent to the Newall Carr Road entrance) must not be used for the purposes of dropping off / picking up students.

Cycling

Cyclists must have their parent/carers' permission, keep their cycles in roadworthy condition, lock them securely and never leave on them parts that can be easily removed. Cycles should be insured under parents' home policy. In the interests of safety, cyclists must dismount at the gate and not ride in the grounds. All students cycling to school must wear protective helmets.

Pedestrians

Pedestrians must not use the driveway but instead should use the steps and footpath from Farnley Lane. If using the Newall Carr Road entrance, students must use the footpath adjacent to the playing fields and not cross the car park. The pedestrian crossings on Farnley Lane and Newall Carr Road should be used to cross the road.
