School Street Scheme

In an effort to improve the safety of children attending Cantell School, Southampton City Council have introduced measures to restrict the use of the road outside of the School and reduce the traffic during the times that children arrive and leave the School.

The restricted times are:

8.00 am to 9.30 am

2.15 pm to 3.45 pm

Please be aware that the scheme is not run by the School but by Southampton City Council, who will issue Fixed penalty notices to those who contravene these restrictions.

How to find us

There is also a bus gate/School Street restriction on Honeysuckle Road between Lilac Road and Daisy Road- similar to what is outside our school site.

The road will be closed to through traffic, parental traffic and other non-authorised vehicles between the hours of 08:00 – 09:30 and 14:15-15:45. There will be a short diversion via Burgess Road to access Violet Road during the closure hours.
