Students are entitled to apply for a car parking permit at our academy, this permit entitles the member of staff to search for and park in an available space in a designated staff parking area. A permit does not guarantee a parking space. Staff are required to pay for parking and charges are levied according to staff pay grade and hours worked.

There are disabled parking bays at the front of the Academy building which can be used by any student with a valid disabled parking badge.

There are electric vehicle charging spaces which can be used for up to four hours by those with a valid staff parking permit. There is a cost associated with these charging points and payment is set up via the provider app.
