Kendrick do not operate a school bus service.
I would expect girls from Maidenhead/Windsor all travel by train

Most girls travel by public bus or train. From Maidenhead/Windsor I'm guessing train is the only realistic option.

It's a short walk from the train station and there will be a sea of red jumpers making their way to school, along with green ones going to Abbey school nearby.
The older sister of one of DDs classmates said that if a girl got lost on the way to school it would be some sort of record.

Do you have a DD starting in September, or looking to see what the travel options are before applying?

Having started this journey recently I can say:
1. It seems Maidenhead the biggest group in year 7. Almost 20 girls.
2. According to the DDs there were 38 DCs ( Kendrick girls + Reading Boys) getting on the train from Maidenhead. Rough count. More from Burnham, Taplow and twyford.
3. Most of the DCs take the train that arrives in Reading at 7.48.
4. At Reading Station they meet more friends arriving from other train lines.
5. Most of the parents went to drop their DCs only on the first day. Some on second day. But all the DDs are used to doing the journey by 3rd day or max by a week in some cases.

Train seems to be the most efficient way.
