We are keen to reduce the amount of traffic entering the school and encourage parents to car share, walk to school or use the minibus services from Prior Park College and Prior Park Garden Centre.
If walking into the school grounds, please enter through the main entrance and then turn right through the gate and walk through ‘Teepee Woods’, or enter through the middle gate. The owner of Prior Park Garden Centre has kindly agreed to allow Paragon parents to park their cars at the garden centre car park for morning drop off and walk their children to school.
By bike or scooter:
There is a shelter available for storing bikes and scooters during the day.
A free minibus service operates from Prior Park College and Prior Park Garden Centre in the mornings and a minibus returns to the College in the evenings. For older children, it is sometimes possible to arrange for pupils to catch one of the minibuses that travels to and from the surrounding villages to the College. These then link up with the minibuses to The Paragon.
Lyncombe Vale is a quiet, residential area with narrow roads and so, during school drop off and pick up times, we operate a neighbourhood traffic scheme, in agreement with our neighbours. Please download a copy of this one-way system. There is limited parking at the school and so parents of Prep children are asked to use the 'drop zones'. If parking outside the school grounds, please remember to park with consideration for local residents.
