Pick Up & Drop Off

Accessing the Nursery & Prep School

Our main priority is to ensure the safety of our girls when they arrive and leave school each day. Parents picking up and dropping off by car can use either the lower driveway or park via the upper driveway; both are staffed before and after school.

Parents are encouraged to walk, cycle, scoot or car share where possible; we are happy to help parents coordinate lift shares amongst themselves.

The Cranwell Hopper Shuttle runs from the senior site on Lansdown Road every morning for girls in the Reception class and upwards. As well as the driver, a bus chaperone accompanies the girls on the short journey. At the end of the school day the shuttle bus returns the girls to the Senior School bus stop. 

For parents using the shuttle in the morning (from Senior School to Prep School) they can drop off at the Senior School bus stop from 7.55am, and need to be at the stop by 8.15am. For the return journey in the afternoon (Prep School to Senior School), the shuttle/s leave the Prep School at about 3.40pm and arrive at the Senior School bus stop by 4.00pm.
