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.
