Icy conditions on Culver Hill are putting pupils at risk, says Amberley School headteacher Peter Godfrey.
He’s urging drivers to slow down and take extra care on the hill, particularly on frosty mornings.
Culver Hill, which leads down from Minchinhampton Common through Amberley is not gritted by Gloucestershire County Council’s Highways team.
“I want to get the message out there to drivers to slow down in the morning. There are lots of cars which use the road as a ‘rat run’ on their way to work.
“This morning they were sliding all over the place.”
“I want to get the message across; please could you slow down by our school.
“These drivers are not speeding but when it’s icy its treacherous on the bend up here.
“It’s like an icerink.”
Mr Godfrey added that he is very concerned about children crossing the road and cars coming down the hill being unable to stop.
Many of the school’s 105 children have to cross the road on their way to school each morning.
