Travelling to Turing House
Students are strongly encouraged to walk or cycle to school, or use public transport, and to check their
route options using TfL Journey Planner or Google Maps.
As the school grows and prepares to move to its permanent site the Local Authority
is liaising with TFL over adjustments to bus schedules to accommodate the additional demand in the
mornings and after school.
Parents are strongly encouraged to avoid using cars to transport their children to the school
given the excellent public transport and other alternatives. If private transport is used, 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.
Cycling to school is encouraged along safe local cycle routes. All students who wish to cycle to school
must have a signed cycle permit - a permit letter is available from the school office. It is
students' responsibility to provide a lock and secure their cycle or scooter in the school shelter -
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 also be worn.
Richmond LA offer free cycle training to anyone who lives, works or studies in
the Borough. Level 2 offers the option to provide a safe route from home to school. Any person under 16
must be accompanied.
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 vehicle
has seen you rather than assume that they have. Use reflective strips on bags and coats to help yourself
to be seen.
