Hi,
We are considering Slough schools for DS.

Are there any children going to Herschel Grammar or Upton grammar from Reading and surrounding areas? If so how do they manage the commute? I heard about coach service from Reading. Any pointers ?

thanks

I've not heard of a coach service and I know people have asked before.

I guess the two routes would be M4 and A4. I've used both to get to Taplow in the past. It's not a great journey and I'm starting from the East side of Reading, so easy access to both. I regularly see the M4 east bound traffic at a standstill between J10 and 11 at befor 7:30 in morning. A4 is a longer journey, and getting through Maidenhead and Slough might be interesting.

Public transport wise, you'd need to get into Reading, then a train out, not sure about the other end. A quick google map check shows it takes 1h 20mins from my house to Herschel so not realistic for an young 11yo in my opinion.

According to admissions officer of Herschel , school is planning to start a new route from reading soon...This was told on open day a week before
However this needs to be confirmed.
