Travel

Travelling to and from school

GSAL pupils come from all over Yorkshire and wherever safe and appropriate, we encourage parents, pupils and staff to walk, cycle, car pool or take the bus to and from school. This is not only healthy and environmentally responsible but also helps reduce traffic congestion in and around our school.

For further information on the options available for travelling to school please click on the relevant button below.

Walking & Cycling

Pupils living in close proximity to the school are encouraged to walk or cycle; they can access the school along Manor House Lane or via the main drive, which has a dedicated cycle path alongside the footpath.

Undercover cycle storage is available on site but users must provide their own lock.

School buses

GSAL bus services

We operate 11 morning and afternoon services, as well as five late services covering large parts of our catchment area to accommodate after school activities.

The school bus price list for the 23-24 year can be found聽 here.

Pupils in Year 3 and above can use our school bus service. Year 3-6 pupils must be met at the bus stop by a responsible adult, unless they have travelled on the bus with a senior school sibling.

The buses arrive at school between 8-8.20am and depart at 4.10pm. The late buses depart at 5.45pm (Mon to Thurs only). Please note, late routes differ from the earlier services. For details of individual routes please click the relevant route below.

Car Pooling

The GSAL Parents and Friends’ Association (PFA) runs Classlist, the secure parent-to-parent communication app. GSAL families can use the app to arrange carpooling, walking or cycling groups with another family who lives near them.聽聽This helps us become a greener school, reduce our carbon footprint and further reduce traffic congestion at peak times on the school drive.

GSAL parents can find further details on

Driving

Drivers must enter school via the main gates on Harrogate Road and travel along the drive to the appropriate drop off or parking area. Vehicular access to Manor House Lane is for residents only.

The lanes on the drive are clearly marked and flow of traffic will be controlled by a traffic light system. Please ensure that the yellow box area at the junction is kept clear at all times.

Accessible parking spaces are available in the short stay and main drop off zones and must only be used by Blue Badge holders.

Sixth form students who drive themselves to school are not permitted to park on site.

Parent drop off and parking areas

In order to ensure the smooth flow of traffic around the site, particularly at peak times, we ask parents to use the relevant drop off zone rather than to park for extended periods. Please click here to view the layout of drop off and parking areas.

Parents may drop off in one of the following three areas:

  1. Express drop-off zone (in front of Primary School) 7.40am-8.30am
    • Parents (Y2 and above) can drop their child off safely and quickly, and immediately leave the school site.
    • There are three lanes which can accommodate 12 cars at any one time.
    • This zone is only for pupils who can exit the car quickly and make their way independently to Primary or Senior School.
  2. Main drop off zone (in the visitor car park area) from 7am
    • This zone is for any pupils who need time to safely exit the car and who can walk to school from their car independently.
  3. Short stay zone (in the visitor car park area) from 7am
    • This area is for parents who need to park for a short period of time whilst they accompany their child to school playgrounds or buildings.
    • There are accessible parking places in this zone.

Pick up at the end of the school day

Parents may pick up from either the main drop off zone or the short stay zone. Both are in the visitors鈥 car park area.

In addition, primary school parents picking up between 3-3.25pm can also park in the express lane area but must exit this area by 3.45pm.
