Most get the train to Burnham & walk - there are plenty of students walking from there. Or there are several buses. Just put it into Google maps. I don't think there is a school bus from Slough as it is a Buckinghamshire school so Bucks don't need to supply transport from other areas. There are private buses arranged from some places but I doubt it from Slough as there is public transport. You could ask the school, though.

I don't know your area but if you have the train option it really isn't so bad. In my area at first parents like the idea of a private bus and have concerns about public transport but the train means they become more independent, can take part in after school clubs and 'twighlight' classes, rather than tied to a fixed coach and are not insulated completely from the rest of the world. I live in very cosmopolitan SE London and the buses are included but we are most likely DD will take the train as she has a friend coming in from further down the line. I have seen many girls make huge friendships over the years by travelling together on the train and it transcends the boundaries of school year and house which is all very healthy.

It is a 5 moniute drive or a few minutes in the train plus a walk. Really, use public transport. It will help your DC to become more independent.
