Controlled crossing facilities are provided allowing all movements and access to the local bus stops at the junction of Richard III Road and St Augustine Road.
Please see attached a walking and cycling map from Leicester City council that will help when planning options for how your child will travel to and from school. We encourage walking and/or cycling.
We have been working closely with the Traffic Planning team at Leicester city council and with local business to help find solutions that will minimise traffic congestion at the school, especially during the busy drop-off and pick-up times.
For those of you that will need to drive your child to school, the Tesco supermarket on New Park Street have kindly agreed to allow parents to park in their car park at the drop-off and pick-up times (from 7:45am to 8:30am and 3:30pm to 4:30pm). Our school is a short walk away from the store. There is a 2 hour time limit on parking in this car park.
Please be advised that Brook Mead Academy scholars will us the main entrance on St Augustine Road. this will be the only entrance into the school.
