Travelling to School

The Wavell School has an active School Travel Plan, which aims to ensure the safety of all site users. Our priority is to encourage healthy habits and therefore walking and cycling are promoted. A copy of the School Travel Plan can be viewed at the School’s Reception.

Parents are not to drive onto the School Site to drop off or collect students*

*Permits are only granted in exceptional circimstances- please contact us to apply 


The main pedestrian access to the School is via the Lynchford Road pedestrian crossing opposite the School gates. Pedestrians and cyclists should use the controlled crossing and footpath into the school playground. Alternatively students are able to enter via the side gate accessed using the Chartwell Gardens pathway. The main car park is out of bounds to pedestrians and cyclists for reasons of safety.
