Parking at Hermitage Academy

As the nights get darker, it can be hard to see the lines on the ‘One Way’ system at Hermitage Academy, however it is there and we must adhere to it for the safety of our children.

When you come into the car park adjacent to the Gill Dobson Sports Centre, please stay to the right and follow the road around.

Please also note that under no circumstances should you park in the space that is adjacent to the path that leads to the all weather pitch.  This is to be left clear for emergency vehicles only.
