Getting to school

For those families that live in Shellingford, walking to school is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: healthier than travelling by car; it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. If you do need to travel by car always park with consideration to Shellingford residents.
