Initiated and funded by the marque as part of a wider parking improvement scheme at The Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, which adjoins the school premises

Designed to enhance safety and reduce local congestion at drop-off and pick-up times 

“This project formed an integral part of our long-term parking improvement scheme at The Home of Rolls-Royce from the very beginning; we worked closely with our friends and neighbours at The March CE Primary School throughout to ensure it met their requirements. We enjoyed welcoming the children on-site to watch the construction work in progress, and we’re delighted they’ve now given the project their final seal of approval!”
Andrew Ball, Head of Corporate Relations, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

Pupils from The March CE Primary School recently attended a special ceremony to mark the completion of their new school car park. The unveiling of new official signage was the final stage in the project, which includes a ‘kiss and drop-off area’ and 40 parking spaces, all funded by Rolls‑Royce Motor Cars.

The car park forms an integral part of a wider parking improvement scheme carried out at The Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood, which adjoins the school premises. During the construction work, pupils made site visits to inspect the works and learn about how the car park was designed and built, and the different materials used.

Beau and Jake, who took part in the early-stage inspections, were on hand again to sign off the works and give the project the final, all-important seal of approval. They were joined by guests including their headteacher, Nicky Metcalfe, and Andrew Ball, Head of Corporate Relations at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Andrew Ball says, “Like many schools, particularly in more rural settings like Westhampnett, The March CE Primary School has long endured school-run parking pressures. We recognised that addressing our own parking challenges presented an unmissable opportunity to resolve two pressing local issues in one stroke. We’re very pleased with the outcome and delighted to have been able to make this happen.”
