PARKING

There is no available carparking in the main School carparks during the day due to Health & Safety regulations. Parking here during the day may result in your car being towed away. We ask that you park safely on the opposite side of the road to the Netball Courts.

For courses held at night or on the weekends you may park within the main carpark but please be aware at times parking can be limited due the number of events that are held at the School outside of School hours.

Please be aware that we have very limited Disabled Parking and none near the centre. If you require assistance, please let us know on enrolment so we can accommodate your needs to the best of our ability. Most of our Classrooms do have 3-4 steps to enter however we do have one classroom with ramp access.


EVACUATION

Should the Fire Alarm sound either during the day or nighttime classes, please assemble in front of the careers office in the main carpark. Your Tutor will ensure that everyone is accounted for before you can leave the site. Please follow any directions given to you by other Staff Members on site, in particular those wearing Hi-Viz vests.


PROGRAMME CHANGES

In rare circumstances, it may be necessary to alter the times and dates of advertised courses. If this occurs we will make every effort to ensure that those registered are notified as early as possible.
