SCP is experienced in addressing a wide range of highways and transportation issues for new education facilities across the country.
Schools and colleges can present a number of challenges in terms of staff and pupil travel and our experience extends across a range of age groups and educational needs. Our early engagement with stakeholders often results in a more integrated layout and successful solution.

Reaseheath College, Cheshire
SCP helped Reaseheath College secure planning permission for their expansion proposals referred to as projects Wren and Chaffinch. The development includes a series of new buildings to accommodate Horticulture, Aboriculture and Countryside courses, along with a new centre for Students with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities. SCP are also currently providing on-site masterplanning and access advice in relation to the future expansion proposals at the College.
West Herts College, Watford
The modernisation of the town centre campus also included amalgamation with its Sixth Form College, offering a site that will accommodate up to 6,000 students. We prepared a detailed Transport Assessment, including car parking assessments and new site access arrangements, along with a Travel Plan that required extensive travel surveys and collaboration with local bus operators.
Amersham & Wycombe College
SCP were commissioned to identify enhancements to the College’s student transport provision to both improve conditions for existing students and to maximise the accessibility of the College to aid recruitment. Following implementation, the Centre Director commented:- “Our students’ transport arrangements are certainly better than before and are having a positive impact on the student experience.”
Waterfoot Primary School, Rawtenstall
Our work for Lancashire County Council required the assessment of an eco-friendly replacement primary school for 315 pupils along with new performing arts facilities, extended classrooms and car park improvements to the adjacent Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School. Attendance at the public exhibition helped identify the key highways issues and concerns of local residents, ensuring that our Transport Assessment covered all aspects of the proposals.
