Travelling to school

Wembley crest
Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we welcome children back to school, please consider walking, wheeling or cycling to drop offs and pick ups where possible.

We are extra mindful of safety and having fewer cars around the school will help us cut congestion. Plus, it’s fun and healthy.

There are lots of places you can go to get help planning your journey, understanding how long each option will take.
