The number of student permits issued is restricted. Permits are allocated on a first come first served basis initially but where the demand for permits exceeds availability then a needs based points system will be employed to decide who will be allocated a permit.

Information for all Permit holders

The roads within the school site, although private property, may be used by the public and therefore come within the definition of roads in the Road Traffic Acts. Accordingly, they are subject to the general law regulating road traffic.

You are not entitled to park:
• In a disabled bay, without an official blue badge
• On hatched areas
• Dangerously or causing an obstruction
• On double yellow lines
• On cycle lanes
• On grass or other landscaped areas

You must display the permit in your vehicle at all times when parked on the school site, in the bottom of the driver’s side of your windscreen. Failure to display your permit breach these conditions and your permit may be withdrawn.

Please note there will be occasions when the Car Park is being used for school events and will not be available. You will be notified of any such closure by e mail.

Expired permits must be returned to the 6th Form Office, Herne Bay High School.

Students are not allowed to bring a motor cycle/vehicle on to the school site during the normal school day unless they have a valid student parking permit.  Any member of the public, including all students may park at weekends without the need for a permit.

If you are not successful in obtaining a parking permit and therefore park in the surrounding residential area, please park considerately and provide the school with your vehicle registration/make/model and colour. As a community school we work hard to maintain a good relationship with local residents and would like this to continue.
