Dropping Off and Parking

As the School is located in both a residential area and close to the centre of Cambridge, your co-operation is kindly requested in following some simple rules when dropping off in the morning and collecting in the afternoon to keep the flow of traffic smooth and safe.  
 
NB: Please pay careful attention, at all times, if you are driving along Grange Road or turning into or out of School premises, to keep both pedestrians and cyclists safe.
 
We operate a ‘Meet and Greet’ system in the mornings at Byron House for children arriving by car, from 8.10am each day. If you are dropping children off, please observe the one-way traffic flow, turning left only into Byron House playground.  A member of staff will be there to greet your child and show them into School.  
 
One-way traffic flow: if you are approaching Byron House from the Madingley Road end of Grange Road by car, please turn right down Clarkson Road before you arrive at Byron House, then follow the loop around to the left through Wilberforce Road and Adams Road which will bring you back onto Grange Road beyond Byron House such that you can turn left into the playground.
 
If you do need to park during morning drop-off or afternoon collection, while parking spaces are not directly available on the School's site for parents (priority is given to staff, visitors and resident staff), there are over 35 spaces, instituted at the School’s request, offering one hour’s free parking, in Clarkson Road which is within easy walking distance of both Byron House and Senior House.  Free parking is also available in surrounding roads (e.g. Adams Road).
 
PLEASE DO NOT:
  • Park on the cycle lane or bus dropping off zones.
  • Block our or our neighbours’ gateways.
  • Park or wait on the Playing Field side of Grange Road.
  • Use Cockcroft Place, the paved area in front of the College Groundsman’s House, or Trinity Old Field for dropping off or parking as it is private property.
  • Reverse into the School drives.
