Walking to School

Chancellor’s School is fully committed to promoting sustainable travel to and from school. Finding easier and more efficient modes of transport to access the school site actively supports our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and making the school environment an even more pleasant place in which to study. Furthermore, walking, cycling or accessing public transport positively reduces noise pollution and congestion, ensuring a calm and orderly start to the day.

We actively encourage all our students who live in Brookmans Park and Welham Green to walk to and from school each day. The bottom field gate is opened at the start and end of each day to facilitate site access. Regular daily exercise is both sociable and invigorating and ensures students arrive to school ready to learn effectively. Please see below for our 5 minute walking bubble which incorporates 3 drop off points.

For those students who would prefer to cycle we provide sheltered bicycle racks just inside the staff car park. If your child would like to cycle to school please ensure they are wearing appropriate visible and protective clothing (including using a cycle helmet) and ensure they are obeying the highway code. Parents should note that all bicycles are parked at the owner’s risk and should be fixed securely to bicycle racks.

Coaches and Buses

Contact details for the providers, routes and schedules of the timetables can be found on the Transport Page of our website.

For students using any of the commercial routes it is strongly recommended they purchase an annual Hertfordshire Saver Card, from Hertfordshire County Council.  

Parents/carers of students with statutory travel entitlement based on distance from the school or other circumstances will be contacted by Hertfordshire County Council regarding travel arrangements and the provision of season tickets.


We discourage parents/carers from driving to and from the school. However, the school recognise that some parents/carers do have to drive their children to and from school. We request that parents drop their children off away from the school, at the bottom of Pine Grove, and for their children to walk the final part of the journey. For parents who do use Pine Grove, we would ask that they use the bus turning circle in the morning for dropping off children. At the end of the school day, parents waiting to collect children are asked to park considerately and legally along Pine Grove or the neighbouring road network, so that the coaches and buses using the turning circle have room to manoeuvre.

Safety is our primary concern

  • Please drive and park considerately when visiting the school for any reason

  • Please show courtesy to others

  • Please do not park across local residents’ driveways

  • Please do not park illegally on double yellow lines

  • Please do not double park

  • Please do not park on zig zags

  • Please do not park on clearly marked no parking areas

  • Please do not exhibit rude and aggressive behaviour 

  • Please do not park bumper-to-bumper 

  • Please do not drive inconsiderately  

  • Please do not cause any obstruction or hinder traffic flow 

The roads are, of course, public highways and, whilst we have no legal authority to prevent you driving and stopping where you choose, the good name of the school and our school community is compromised when the above requests are ignored.

The staff car park must NOT be used under any circumstances for meeting, collecting or dropping off your children.
