Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.

The site is within walking distance of both Central Station (approximately 420m via Chalmers Street) and Redfern Station (approximately 780m via Redfern Street, Pitt Street).

The rail services on offer at these two locations provide very broad coverage of the Sydney metropolitan area. 

Also, there are bus connections between Inner Sydney High School and both Redfern and Central Stations (see next section).

The services provide a reasonably broad coverage of the district around the school. During school start and finish times there is a bus roughly every two minutes in each direction along the north south corridor (Chalmers Street and Elizabeth Street).

Cleveland Street bus services:

Route 352 and Route 355
