We appreciate that Dean Street is a cul-de-sac and a narrow, steep road with little available parking. By working together we can make the best and the safest routine out of an unavoidable situation.

Do you need to come in the car? 

Could you walk to school?

If you need to drive, could you park a little further away and walk the last part?

Could you car share?


Hopefully, together by adopting these measures we will help to reduce congestion around school.
