Travelling to college

There are lots of vehicles and large coaches coming into and leaving the college roadways at our peak arrival and departure times. The routes into and out of college have been planned to reduce congestion and keep everyone safe. If you:
- have a lift to and from college, keep yourself safe by obeying the ‘rules 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
- 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 permit. Scooters 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.office.com/r/M098RRQEEd
Designated cycle and walk to college routes: All students walking or riding to college will need to enter the college via the back gate, ensuring you arrive by 8:20am. Once you come onto the college site, you must walk with your bike (do not ride through the site). It is important that if students need to cross Hillson Drive, they cross via Nashe Way.
It is important that your parent/carer voluntarily follows the one-way system when leaving - drive up Hillson Drive, turn into Wynton Way or Thorni Avenue and then down Fareham Park Road. 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 recommended ‘park and stride’ drop off points, you will help to:
- create a safer environment for students making their journey to and from college
- reduce congestion around the college entrance
- help reduce pollution to the local area
- improve health and wellbeing by encouraging an increase in your daily step count

The Whiteley buses are operated by Xelabus.
