Garden Suburb School is situated at the southern end of the London Borough of Barnet, in Hampstead Garden Suburb. It is surrounded by a very pleasant residential area and has close access to the Temple Fortune shopping area.
Although our postal address is Childs Way, there is no parking, the road is very narrow and there is no vehicle access from 8.30 - 9.30am and again from 2.45 - 3.45pm.
Vehicle access is therefore via Willifield Way, where there is parking in and around the area (there is also meter parking on Finchley Road).
There is a Controlled Parking Zone in the area immediately around school with residents only parking between 1.00 – 2.00pm.
There is Barnet CCTV in operation monitoring Childs Way and enforcing parking restrictions.
The school car park is strictly for staff use, and should not be used by the parents at any time. The school car park has limited spaces, however staff can apply for a parking permit to park in the local streets.
A footpath runs down the side of the school from Willifield Green to Childs Way for access to the Infant School via the pedestrian security gates. Visitors should press the Infant School Buzzer for access to the playground, and then again at the front door (far right hand corner of the building, through the inner gate which should be shut behind you).
Parking and Safety
Clearly traffic and parking around the school can present a serious safety hazard for children. We ask all parents to drive and park responsibly in the local area. This includes:-
Not driving up/parking or turning on Childs Way at any time.
Not blocking the slip road off Willifield Green.
Following the parking restriction notices in the area.
Please note that the school is just inside the ULEZ, which starts at the North Circular Road, so vehicle restrictions apply.
