As part of our commitment to sustainable transport and improved air quality, we ask students to walk, cycle or use public transport to get to the Academy. See our policies section HERE for our latest Travel Plan.
How to Travel to School
Travel to the new Bolder location MacFarlane Lane, Isleworth, TW7 5DB
There are no drop-off facilities at Bolder for students arriving by car as the road is narrow and there are no formal turning areas.
If you need to bring your child to school by car, please use our 'Park and Stride' arrangement with Tesco.
Here, you can drop off your child in Tesco and they can use the side gate to allow students to walk the short distance to school. This gate will be open at the beginning and the end of the day only.
