Welcome to our Cams Hill School Residents Information page
This part of the website has been set up to help residents who live in the immediate Shearwater area stay informed about events happening at the school.
A27 Cams Hill Improvement Scheme
We have written to parents/carers to inform them, from Monday, 29 January 2024, after the pupils have entered the school in the morning, the main footpath on the A27 Westbound side is to be closed and the small section of the Eastbound footpath on the A27 will also be closed/fenced off. Pupils will be directed to walk down St Catherines and the Ridgeway.
These closures will stay in place for a minimum of 12 weeks. This will mean Pupils will only be able to enter and leave the school using the Main Entrance and to alleviate congestion at the end of the day we will be slightly revising the finish times, during this period as follows:
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
Year 7 & 8 – 2.55pm
Years 9 & 10 – 3.05pm
Year 11 – 3.15pm
Year 7 & 8 – 2.15pm
Years 9 & 10 – 2.20pm
Year 11 – 2.25pm
These revised staggered end times will start from Monday, 29 January 2024. Morning stagger times will remain the same.
In addition to this, a temporary exit will be in place next to the entrance gate to the school’s Car Park. This will help manage the flow of pupils at the end of the day and avoid congestion at the traffic lights at the A27 cross roads. This exit will be for pupils walking in the direction of Portchester only. We have request that parents/carers, during this period, refrain from driving into Shearwater Avenue this will reduce the amount of traffic around the school, and encourage pupils to walk. We are therefore writing to apologies for any inconvenience caused while these works are taking place.
If residents have any issues with parking in Shearwater Avenue due to the use of the 3G Football Pitch, please call Mr Rich Berry, Site Manager on 01329 231641 during school opening hours or 07916266417 for out of hours when the facilities are in use.
