“We want everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy daily exercise in the Spring sunshine, even if they don’t have access to a garden or park during the current lockdown.” Head, Adam Pettitt

Our School sports field is open to the local community each weekday morning and evening free of charge. We welcome walkers, runners and sprinters of all levels.

 

Public exercise times

Monday – Friday only:
6.30am-8.00am
4.30pm-7.00pm

 

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 10.30am until 12.30pm have specifically been allocated for local residents who might be older or vulnerable, or just in need of a quieter space for very gentle exercise.

We have adequate outdoor space to safely accommodate a maximum of 40 local residents who want to do their daily exercise close to home. You can enter the field via the Gate opposite our Junior School (see the map below) on Bishopswood Road.

We are keen to stress that we don’t want to encourage travel from further afield via the use of cars or public transport in case this poses any risks to the public using the grounds, so are only making the outdoor space available to locals who can walk to the School.
