Hi Happy Dad,
Just a little message to confirm that indeed, to go from Kings Norton to SCGSG is easy as it is just direct by train. My DD, many moons ago (she is now at uni)
, made extremely quickly friends on the train. The girls used to get altogether and have a good time... and my DD never
opened a book nor a notebook though this is what initially I was expecting of her so that she would make good use of her travelling time
... Anyway, I quickly realised I had a sweet dream.
But please, make your friend’s mind at rest concerning this travel! Train means no traffic jams so she’ll cross the city quickly and safely. There are a bit fewer trains during the ‘leaf season’ because the trains need more time & space to brake (so train every 20 mn instead of every ten mn if I am not mistaken), but this last just a few weeks, maybe starting now?
Once in Wylde Green station, there is a pathway near the train track and some flight of stairs which come onto Highbridge road (it is shorter going that way than through the station entrance). The girls cross there, being mindful of the cars (no traffic lights) and then they walk along goldleslie road.
SCGSG is a wonderful school and I wish your friend’s DD many happy years there!!
