- To encourage more sustainable car use;
- To minimise the level of traffic in the area, especially at peak times;
- Ensure that the development of the school’s estate supports the Travel Plan;

Furthermore, Higham Lane School is committed to: -
- Encouraging sustainable travel options to its pupils;
- Reducing carbon emissions and climate impacts;

To meet these commitments, Sixth Form students are not permitted to bring a vehicle on to school premises and are also not permitted to drive their own vehicle to School and park on neighbouring streets. Students are prohibited from parking within 1 mile of the school premises.
Students that live reasonable distances away from school should refer to the bus timetables provided in the Sixth Form Centre for appropriate route information. Students living in close proximity should walk or cycle to the School.
Sixth Form students are also permitted to park at the local Ambleside Sports Club on Ambleside Way free of charge. This is a short walk from the School.
