Parking at King Edwards

The Chief Master has specifically stated that under no circumstances should any person park their vehicle on the double yellow lines throughout the site, at the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre and most definitely not on the grass verges.

We hope you will take note and act accordingly to maintain the good relationship we have with the school.

To see the dates on which parking at King Edwards is prohibited - please see our changes and closures web page

In order to park on the King Edwards School site, all cars must display a parking sticker. Failure to do so may end in tears.
