Much faster could be the train from Southall to Langley.

Yes that is an option, but I consider him a bit young to travel on his own, which he'll have to that method; I suppose if he were travelling with other kids, that would differant; would you know if lot of children use the train from southall?

Hordes of secondary pupils of all ages travel by train around our area, some of them from as far away as 30-odd miles Sorry, but getting DC used to using public transport is one of my 'things' - much more convenient to be able to get the next bus / train if you miss the one you were aiming for, rather than having to get a parent to come and fetch you, and much easier for joining in with after-school activities :) . Assuming that you want to, of course.

Have you actually done the school journey by train with your DS? Unfortunately, unless Slough schools break up very late it's a bit late now to find out first hand how many others use the train - I would suspect quite a few, if the school is a popular choice from around your way. It looks like be a pretty straightforward journey.

Thanks ToadMum, I agree they should be getting used to travelling alone, I actually phoned the school today, to find they broke up Friday...train is the quickest way, but the journey to the school from station is 15 mins walking; in this type of weather its ok, but I'm thinking middle of winter? I suppose if you want to go to a grammer of your choice, which he is doing, then you have to put up with a certain ammount of difficulty.

Well, I have no idea how flat or otherwise Langley is, only ever whizzed through it or past it, so to speak, but just to encourage you, our nearest grammar schools are about 20 minutes' walk from the station which is down the hill from our house and quite a lot of the hordes I mentioned are heading there or to the RC secondary opposite them. In all weathers - the trains run when the mummies / daddies / private mini-coach drivers won't even venture out of the door :wink:
