Walking and cycling: arguably the most reliable methods by which to reach college on time, and to easily head home as soon as college ends with no need to wait for transport! The college has on site bike racks available to students who cycle in. If you wish to reach the college on foot or by bike you may want to plan your route using Google Maps:

Car

Robertsbridge is a small rural college which was built in a time when cars were not so common. Access to the site is via a fairly narrow cul de sac. At peak times such as the start and end of the college day, and during major parent events the site can become very congested. At the end of the day a large number of buses enter the college site and this prevents any movement of cars from approximately 3pm and until they have departed.

For these reasons, and to reduce vehicle movement on site while students are entering and leaving the buildings, we request that parents do not drive on to the site unless essential and instead drop and collect students who are driven to college at the crossroads between Knelle Road and Langham Road or another suitable nearby location. Please also be mindful of our neighbours, ensuring that you do not block their driveways when waiting to collect your child at the end of school.

Parking

If you do have to drive on to the site please ensure that you park only in a marked bay. Hatched areas must be kept clear to enable the buses which serve the college from navigating the roundabout. Parking outside of a bay will block other parked cars inconveniencing others and / or will block buses and can therefore not be permitted.
