Travel to School
We encourage the majority of pupils to walk to Alderwood if at all possible. Not only does walking keep you fit and healthy, but it also eases congestion on the roads and protects our environment.
Cycling is also a good way to travel to school, although you need to make sure that your bicycle is roadworthy and that you are wearing a helmet and high-visibility clothing for safety. We have cycle racks at school for safe storage during the school day.
In this section of the school website, you will see a link to a map showing how long it takes to walk or cycle to school, depending on where you live. The vast majority of our pupils can walk to school within 20 minutes and can cycle to school within 8 minutes. For most, this is much quicker than driving, and it is certainly much healthier.
On the occasions where driving is unavoidable, we would remind parents always to drive and park considerately and safely around the school. You might also like to consider ‘Park and Stride’.
For the Senior school, please can you use either the Aldershot Lido or the Aldershot Park car parks. These are a 5 – 10 minute walk to either the Heron Wood Road entrance or the main Tongham Road entrance. Please see the leaflet below.
