Very well done to your DD.

That is some commute from Harrow. :shock:

Your best bet is probably to get the train from Southall or one of the nearby stations on First Great Western line as lots of girls come by train from Twyford, Maidenhead and Slough. Very few from further out but there are the odd girls who come from London( although this year will be the last one where they are likely to get in because of new catchment rules).

Congratulations to DD for getting in but I can't help feeling you are an awful long way away

Thats going to be one **** of a journey. I hope you don't mind me saying but I wouldn't even consider doing that distance myself for work let alone have my daughter do it.

I also noticed from one of your other posts that you don't know very much about Kendrick.

Congratulations to your DD.

ks outlines the only way I can think of to do this. Depending on where you live, your DD will be facing well over an hour's journey assuming no glitches (getting to station, waiting for train, 35-40 minutes train journey, 10-15 minute walk from platform to school). And home again. In all weathers, and in the dark in winter.

So Harrow (even South Harrow) to Kendrick is a horrendous daily journey for an adult let alone a child, as Tinker points out. If you are serious about her taking the place, please move closer for your DD's sake. As I notice from another thread that your first choice is HBS, fingers crossed that you get that instead.

I am very sympathetic to the situation that has you considering this, but am left wondering why you wouldn't have checked all this out before sitting the entrance test?

I couldn't have put it better. I hope you either get either a closer choice or move closer to Reading. Having commuted from Reading to London for some time it's not a journey I would wish on anyone
