Travelling to college

There are lots of vehicles and large coaches coming onto and leaving the college roadways both in the morning and the afternoon when you are trying to get into or out of college. These routes into and out of college have been planned to assist you and reduce congestion and keep everyone safe.   If you:

  • have a lift to and from college, keep yourselves safe by obeying the ‘Rule of the Road’ and follow any signs, always look to check for vehicles before crossing
  • walk to and from college, use the walk to college route via the tennis courts, by doing this you are helping us to reduce pedestrian congestion on Henry Cort Drive
  • ride into college use the ride to college route via the tennis courts, as soon as you come onto the college site get off your bike and push it up to the cycle racks, when you leave college do not get on your bike until you have left the site.  Your bike must be roadworthy with working breaks and lights for the winter.  You must wear a cycle helmet and have a bike permitScooters are not permitted.  Failure to do so will result in you not being allowed to bring your bike onto site.   You can apply for a bike permit using the following form: https://forms.gle/JXigpbxf21dFU5Ff6 External link

Designated cycle and walk to college routes: All students who walk or ride to college will need to enter the college via the back gate and ensure you arrive at your designated time.  Once you come onto the college site walk your bike, do not ride through the site.  It is important that if students need to cross Hillson Drive they cross via Nashe Way.

TRAVELLING BY CAR

It is important that your parent/carer voluntarily follows the one-way system and come up Hillson Drive and turn into Wynton Way or Thorni Avenue and then down Fareham Park Road when leaving.  Cars should not turn into Henry Cort Drive.  Please make sure you are dropped off in Hillson Drive or use ‘park and stride’ drop off points.  These are located at Nashe Way, Highlands Road shopping car park, Oak Road and Deviation Line car park, as shown in the map overleaf.

By using the suggested ‘park and stride’ drop off points, this will help to:

  • Drastically reduce the amount of traffic and congestion for residents within the vicinity of the college
  • Help reduce pollution to the local area
  • Create a safer environment for students on their route to and from college
  • Improve your health and wellbeing by encouraging an increase in your daily step count

TRAVELLING BY BUS

The Passenger Transport Group is responsible for providing transport assistance to school for entitled students.  Parents can apply for transport through the online Transport Portal and should not be completing paper forms.  Please visit Passenger Transport Group's website which will provide you with information on eligibility and the link to the application portal: https://www.hants.gov.uk/educationandlearning/schooltransport/apply External link

The Whiteley buses are operated by Lucketts, and it is vital that students get on the correct bus and students trying to board the wrong bus may be refused travel, and it will be parental responsibility to get their child(ren) into college.

In addition to Passenger Transport, we run a minibus service for students who have bought seats and live in the vicinity of the areas listed below.
