At Amherst, we encourage children to walk to school, not only because of the health benefits but as a way of reducing traffic and congestion around the school at busy times.
Car Parking around the school is extremely limited, so we advise parents to use Beau Sejour car park which is available to all Amherst families at drop off and pick up times.
Parents are not permitted to park on school grounds unless volunteering to help and have agreed with this with the Headteacher.
We ask that you observe the no parking areas and do not leave your car unattended. Please note that if you park in an area marked 'Terre A L'Amende' you will be subject to a fine.
Amherst School Bus
Our school bus drop-off and pick-up points are below. Please note parents need to be with their children both in the morning and waiting for them at the end of the day.
Rue de Chateau/Clos Marais junction at 8.25 am and 3.25 pm
Rue Clouet/Rue Jamouneau pick up between 8.30 - 8.35 am and 315 - 3.20 pm
Please check with Mrs Hamon in the school office for availability as spaces are limited.
Some of our children cycle to school and we offer Year 6 an opportunity to participate in a cycling proficiency course called ‘Bikeability’. Before children cycle to school, we ask that you read and sign the cycling permission form available from the school office.
Bike racks are situated by the swimming pool for children to leave their bikes securely during the school day.
If walking or cycling is not an option for you you could consider car-sharing as a way to reduce traffic and travel costs.
