Improved School Security: Main Entrance Pedestrian Gate

Over the summer break, the pedestrian gate on the main school entrance has been fitted with a magnetic lock to improve school security on site and ensure the highest level of safeguarding.

If you are visiting school between 8.45am and 3.10pm you will find the gates locked. Please use the intercom to speak to school reception who will open the gate for you. You will then need to report to the main reception as you have done previously.

Punctuality reminder: As always, we expect our students to arrive to school in good time. All students need to be punctual and be on the school site before 8.45am in good time to be in their 8.50am form period. Therefore they need to be on site prior to the gates being locked.

If you are dropping off your son/daughter by car in the morning, please be advised that the main school vehicle access gate will be locked from 8.00am.

As in previous years the main school gates on Bolton Road will be closed from 2.55pm until 3.20pm. We cannot safely support students leaving the site when there are cars moving in and out of the carpark.
