Following the success of completing Level 1 and Level 2 Bikeability in March 2018, four of our pupils have gone on to complete Level 3. This is a first for our school and the trainers and pupils have given great feedback on this achievement.

The pupils who have completed Level 3 on the two training mornings 25th April and 27th April 2018 are: Shaun (7SK), Aimee (8LB), Matthew (9MK) and Zechariah (10ZK).  

Matthew said “It was fun and exciting being on main roads, it was a great experience.”

Zechariah said  “The trainers were lovely, they explained what to do well and I had a great time.“


Well done and a huge thanks to the Road Safety Team at Hillingdon for their fantastic work with our pupils and for being so lovely to work with.
