"I just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to park at the school on Saturday, the arrangements worked perfectly and I wish you well with this fundraising exercise for the school for the future."
Orleans Park School offers secure parking an easy walk from the RFU Ground and many popular hostelries, yet at a convenient distance to avoid the pre- and post-match traffic chaos. We're particularly well-placed for visitors from the north, east and south. We are signposted in the local area.
We must advise you that our parking initiative is popular, and we do recommend that you book in advance to guarantee a space. Pre-booking is accepted in good faith: we do not make a charge for this service, but ask that if you pre-book you take up your space by a stipulated time or advise us if you plan to arrive later. You may do this by email in advance or on a mobile number for the match day. Thank you.
Vehicles are parked at their owner's risk. The school reserves the right to refuse entry. The school gates will be locked for the duration of the match, and will be locked at the times advised.
