How To Get Here

Nearly all of our Early Years and Infant pupils are brought to school by their parents/ carers but many of our older children make their own way, travelling on foot or by bicycle, scooter, tram or bus. All children need to arrive by 08.50am in order to be registered promptly with their Class Teacher.

For pupils making their own way by public transport, the TfL site is the place to look for the most up to date information. Student discount forms for travel on public transport can be picked up from any main railway stations. 

By Bus
Two buses travel past the school or close by, these are the 197, and 130. 

On The Tram
Our closet tram stop is Arena and then it is a 5 minute walk from the station across the Arena car park, past the Oasis Academy Arena secondary school and then the third left into Oakley Road.

By Car
Some parking is available on site but this is only for members of staff.

There is plenty of parking in adjacent streets. At present there are no resident-only restrictions. 

By Train
The nearest station is Norwood Junction. On arrival you can take a 197 or 130 buses out of the back entrance of the station. East Croydon station is another station that is close by. On arrival you can get a tram that is going to Elmers End or Beckenham and get off at Arena or take a short walk around the corner and get the 197 bus and get off by South Norwood swimming pool the school is a few minutes away down Oakley Road.

On Foot
Walking from Croydon takes approximately 20-25 minutes, from Norwood Junction stations between 15 and 20 minutes.

By Bicycle
Pupils may cycle or scoot to school (accompanied by a parent where necessary), locking their bikes securely away in a cycle rack. We advise all cyclists to wear helmets and high visibility garments at all times on their journey to and from school.
