Staff will normally aim to respond to emails within three working days. If your query is a complicated one, it may take longer, but staff will normally respond within three days to let you know how long it will take to give you a full answer.

Not all staff work five days per week, so if your enquiry is urgent it is probably better that you make telephone contact via the school office in the first instance.

Disabled Parking - The school shares a car park with the Lymington Health & Leisure Centre and there are several disabled bays which are located nearest to the school buildings.  Access to the main reception is signposted from the barrier. If you need to park closer to the school please let us know in advance and we can arrange to let you through the barrier and reserve a space for you.

Hearing Loop - We have a portable hearing loop. If you are visiting the school and will need to have access to a hearing loop, please let us know.

Toilets - There are four accessible toilets in the school located on the ground floor of the Main Building, Robert Hole Building, Performing Arts Centre and Gurney Dixon Building.

Access to the site - Most areas of the site are easily accessible to the ground floor, however there are no lifts to 1st or 2nd floor rooms. If you have a physical disability please let us know and we can ensure that any meetings are held in ground floor rooms.

Information for visitors and parents - If you require information in a specific colour or larger font size, please let us know.  It may even be possible to provide some information on a tape. Where possible, we are very happy to provide information specific to individual requirements.

Fire Evacuation - If you have any special needs please inform reception upon arrival. We can then ensure that appropriate assistance is in place for the duration of your visit. Upon arrival in reception you will be given a leaflet entitled “Health & Safety Guidance for Visitors and Contractors” which contains useful information. The muster point for a fire evacuation is on the main field in front of the reception area.

We are constantly seeking to improve the information we give you. If you feel we have missed anything, please let us know.
