We are delighted to have been selected to be part of the Greater Manchester cycle schools and colleges project.  We hope to encourage more pupils, staff and members of the local community to participate in cycling related activities. 

We would like to encourage as many pupils as possible to use public transport, walk or cycle to school.  We have space on the school site for 48 cycles.  Each cycle rack has a locker.  The key is made available by inserting a one pound coin (this is refunded).

To be allowed to store a cycle on site all pupils and parents must sign the agreement which can be found on p8 of the pupil planner.

Pupils may cycle to school provided the following conditions are met:

  1. Pupils must only park bikes in the cycle racks (once a permit has been signed)
  2. Riding bikes on the school site is strictly forbidden and boys must walk with them to the storage area.
  3.  A cycle helmet must be worn on the way to and from school.
  4. The cycle should be regularly checked and maintained.
  5. To deter theft, an appropriate lock will be used to lock the bike during the day.
  6. Pupils using their bike in periods of darkness will ensure they have working lights and make an effort to be visible to other road users by wearing appropriate safety clothing.

The school will take all reasonable steps to ensure general security throughout the day but are not responsible for any damage or loss that may occur.
