Travelling to Turing House

Safety When Travelling

Please remember to take care when travelling, particularly when crossing roads. Other road users may not see you, particularly in bad weather or when it is dark. If in doubt always wait to see whether a car or bicycle has seen you rather than assume that they have. Use reflective strips on bags and coats to help yourself to be seen.

1. Walking

Students are encouraged to walk to school. The student entrance is in Queens Road.

2. Bus

There are a range of direct bus services stopping within close vicinity of the school. Further details of routes and timetables can be obtained using the links below.

Bus Stop Map

We are in discussion with TFL over adjustments to these bus schedules to accommodate the additional demand in the mornings and after school.

3. Train

The nearest station is Teddington which is less than half a mile from the school. Information about the station and timetables can be obtained here: Teddington

4. Cycling / Scooters

Cycling to school is also encouraged and there are various local cycle routes in and around Teddington. The school provides a covered cycle shelter, however it is students' responsibility to provide a lock  and secure their cycle or scooter - we recommend a "D-lock". The school does not take responsibility for any loss, damage or theft.

Students are reminded to ensure that their cycles are roadworthy and that they ensure they are visible to other road users by using lights and high visibility clothing. Helmets should be worn.

Richmond LA offer cycle training to anyone who lives, works or studies in the Borough. The 1:1 tuition costs £10 and is for 90 mins and Level 2 offers the option to provide a safe route from home to school. Any person under 16 has to be accompanied. 

5. Private Transport

Parents are strongly encouraged to avoid using cars to transport their children to the school given the excellent public transport and other alternatives.

There is no drop-off or parking area on site or in Queens Road.  Stanley Road opposite the school generally has ample space to drop-off and is wide and clear with good visibility. The crossings to the school are very good, though busy, so please remind your children to be careful, and we will do the same.

if collecting, parents and carers are respectfully requested to abide by the guidance we will issue from time to time and to be considerate in their parking. Please do not use Teddington Memorial Hospital Car Park.
