Travel and transport
Car parking for members of the Sixth Form is not available on the Warwick Independent Schools Myton Road campus.
In line with local authority requirements, the Foundation is currently working through the implementation of its Traffic Management Plan, a significant part of which is the expectation of achieving a reduction of vehicular traffic both on the campus itself and in the vicinity of the four schools that now occupy the site.
Currently we have partnered with Warwick Castle who offer a year’s parking permit for the Stables Car Park in Warwick that members of the Sixth Form can apply for, if you do not wish to use the public pay-and-display car parks in Warwick. Warwick Castle are offering King’s and Warwick students a season pass for term time days (7am-6pm) at the price of £275 (gross), which is around £1.60 per day.
Permits can be processed from Friday 2 September. If you would like to take the Castle up on this offer, then you will need to:
- Complete the Castle Parking form
- Send confirmation from school to Warwick Castle of eligibility (Please see Mrs Kang in her first floor office to collect a letter confirming you attend the school).
- Take the castle parking form and letter of eligibility to the Ticket Offices at Warwick Castle, opening hours are 10am to 4.30pm.
Please note, there will be a limited number of these season passes available over the year and the parking contract is made with Warwick Castle and not with Warwick or King’s High. Season passes are available from now onwards.
From time to time, individuals who are qualified to drive and have not chosen to apply for a permit, decide to park in neighbouring residential roads/areas. While we have no jurisdiction over such individuals if they choose to park in neighbouring roads, the practice of so doing has previously caused anguish and anger for the residents who live there. The movement of King’s High to the Myton Road Campus has shifted substantially the traffic movements around Warwick and we do have a responsibility to minimise as far as possible its impact. Our reputation with our neighbours, local community and town of Warwick is as important to us as our reputation regionally and nationally. We want to be a positive contributor to the town, not a negative one. The wearing of Warwick School uniform and tie should be done with pride but at the same with recognition that when in the community you are still representing the school. For these reasons we would ask that any pupils driving to school who do not wish to park either in the Stables Car Park or St Nicholas Park first speak to one of the Sixth Form team, who will discuss the options with them.
Those members of the Sixth Form driving a car to school are reminded that while they are allowed to sign out at lunchtime they should only be using their car to arrive and depart from Warwick at the beginning and end of the school day.
Use of car in the school day:
Pupils are not permitted to use their cars during the school day, other than driving themselves to and from a designated a suitable car park outside of the school grounds, such as at The Castle.
Driving to School Fixtures
Pupils driving themselves to school fixtures is not allowed.
Pupils do not have permission to take driving lessons during the school day. Pupils are not allowed to drive into or out of the school site during a lesson. Pupils are able to request absence in order to take a driving test by completing an absence request on the school portal.
