Getting to school
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option if you live locally. There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely. Be aware that St Mark’s Road between St Mark’s Road and Armfield Crescent is part of Merton’s school safety zone scheme and any cars entering the road between 8.00 - 9.15am and 2.45 – 3.30pm could receive a penalty charge notice.
