MSD, are you aware Adams run a bus that picks up in Wolverhampton at 0750. It is only 30 minutes to get to the school.
We also live in Sedgley and are currently considering which schools to choose - son has a choice of BV and Aston and possibly FW. AGS and OSH are slim chances. Whichever one it ends up being travel is involved, unfortunately that is the nature of the beast.
I know boys who catch the bus at 0650 for FW from Milking Bank and they don't seem too bothered by it. It just becomes routine - they generally appear to mess about in the morning and get some homework done in the evening.
Would like him to get a top 10 place at WGS then it is free - and one 20 minute bus ride from home.
