Due to the restricted site there is no student parking on the New College site itself except for any physically disabled learners who should contact the Estates and Health & Safety Manager.
Any student wishing to park on the car park adjacent to the College must obtain a car parking permit from Student Services and have more than one student in the vehicle when parking up/leaving. Parking in this car park is entirely at the students own risk and we accept no responsibility for any damage which may occur in using this car park. Under GDPR guidelines we are not able to supply any CCTV information to students in relation to any incidents which may occur in this car park. Students must park sensibly and be aware that the gates are shut between 3:45pm and 4:15pm to restrict access onto Park Lane to protect pedestrians leaving College. Students also have access to the overspill car park at Pontefract Collieries at the end of Beech Nut Lane and are advised that this car park is less busy and has better access at 4.00pm. Please be mindful that Beechnut Lane is a residential area and students should not block access driveways or park on the lane itself but use the car park provided, park sensibly and be aware we accept no responsibility for any damage which may occur in using this car park. There should be no student parking in Pontefract Park at any time and no parking in the College Staff Car Parks or Beechnut Lane.
Student Drop Off
There is no waiting in the College car parks. Parents are advised to use Pontefract Collieries grounds at the end of Beechnut Lane for the drop off and collection of students. Parking/waiting is also prohibited on the residential streets adjacent to the college as these areas are permit holder only. Please be mindful that Beechnut Lane is a residential area and parents should not block access to driveways or park on the lane itself, but use the car park provided. Due to the building works taking place in Pontefract Park there are no areas for parents/guardians to wait and they could be putting student lives at risk as there is heavy machinery moving around in this area. We have been advised that the parks authorities may prevent access to the park during this time from a health and safety perspective.
We thank you in anticipation of your co-operation and support in ensuring our students are kept safe travelling to and from College.
