Archbishop Holgate's School is a welcoming school, that welcomes students from across the city, from East Yorkshire and further.  We have students who come from over 20 different primary schools.  We are very lucky to have excellent transport links, which cater for the needs of all our students.  Examples include:


If your child walks, please can you ensure, they use the pelican crossings (if appropriate) and are dressed appropriately for the weather.


We are blessed with cycle lanes just outside of the school and we have bike parks, where students must use a secure lock.  Again we do stress the importance of students being responsible and following the highway code.  All students should wear cycle helmets and florescent clothing.

We do ask if parents do decide to drive their child to school that for health and safety reasons they DO NOT drive on to the school site, before or after school when it is very busy.  We would also ask that you drop a suitable distance from the school and not on the double yellow lines.
