Location

    St Christopher’s School is located at the following address:

    32 Belsize Lane

    Hampstead

    London

    NW3 5AE

    Transport

    The school is within 7 mins walk of Belsize Park station (Northern Line), 9 mins walk to Hampstead Heath Station (North London Line), 13 mins walk from Swiss Cottage station (Jubilee Line) and 13 mins walk from Finchley Road station (Jubilee and Metropolitan Line).

    We are also within walking distance of bus routes 268, 168, C11, 46, 24, 113, 13, 187.

    Parking

    There is no parking in school. The school’s policy is to encourage parents to seek alternative methods of travel. Pupils are encouraged to walk, cycle or scoot to school and we provide a scooter parking bay and cycle parking spaces. 

    There are a few pay and display parking bays on Belsize Lane and towards Belsize Village but it is usually difficult to park near school as it is a residential area with restrictions.

    Considerate Driving

    We encourage parents to follow a one-way system when dropping at and picking up from the school to limit conjestion - all cars should travel from the Ornan Road end of Belsize Lane towards Wedderburn Road. We ask all our parents and visitors to park considerately and not on pavements or over driveways. Please ensure that you do not have your engines on where you are waiting outside the school gates to reduce air pollution.

    Morning Drop-off

    Each morning the school offers a staggered drop-off for children in Years 1-6 from 8am-8.30am. Girls will be supervised in the playground until 8.30am or in the hall where weather necessitates this.  Reception children can be dropped from 8.15am. 

    We also have a member of staff waiting at the school gate who will open your car passenger doors and ensure the children alight safely to school. We hope this reduces the conjestion for our neighbours where car transport is required.
