Cycling to School

We are becoming increasingly concerned for the safety of our cyclists and so from September 2017 we are making it a condition on issuing a cycle permit that students must wear a cycle helmet.  Full details are below.

Please note that cycle permits are issued annually and are only valid for one academic year.  All current permits must be renewed in September.

Cycle Permit Conditions

Students may cycle to school as long as their bike is in a roadworthy condition. A cycle helmet that conforms to current regulations, is the correct size and is securely fastened must be worn. (UK Highway Code 2017).

Please ensure that he/she is clearly visible to other road users when riding to and from school and is reminded that bicycles may only be ridden on the road and on cycle tracks. Students must not cycle on pavements.  

Failure to adhere to the above conditions will result in a cycle permit being withdrawn.

A lock must be used to secure their bike in the cycle shed at the front of the school.  Whilst every effort is made to ensure the security of bikes whilst on the school premises, the school cannot accept any liability for loss or damage.

Students must obtain a Cycle Permit from their Head of House before bringing their bike to school. An application form may be found below or obtained from the Head of House.”
