Travelling to and from school

At Amherst School, we encourage children to walk or cycle to school, not only because of the health benefits but also because of reducing traffic and congestion around the school during busy times. 


Car Parking

Car Parking around the school is extremely limited. We advise parents to use Beau Sejour car park which is available to all Amherst families at drop-off and pick-up times. 



We ask that if you are parking in the streets surrounding our school, you observe the no parking areas and do not leave your car in an unsafe location. 


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. Heaume in the school office for availability, as spaces are limited.


Some of our children cycle to school, and we offer Years 5 & 6 children 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. We are excited to announce that we will have new, purpose-built bike shelters fitted in the Spring Term of 2024.
