Hi daughter has a place at qmhs. I didn't go to any of the open days so have no idea what the school is like. Has anyone got any experience of this school? The grounds look very small and daughter most likey will be getting the greenbus from handsworth wood rd and i will pick her up after school. Is the journey bk from walsall to brum clear around 3.40 onwards on the m6? Or should i avoid the m6 route. Also I'm hoping for a miracle for dd to get into Scgsg on 213 as it's 10-15 mins away

Congraulations on your dds place at QMHS.Simple journey up the A34 over the motorway junction then along the broadway.No need to avoid the M6 route.

It is one of the best schools in Walsall.

You can visit the school on the open days.

Sorry I was under the impression travelling to and from Handsworth Wood in Birmingham

I suppose it depends where.

If its the Handsworth Wood area the logistics generally wouldn't make sense to travel away from the school from the Handsworth Wood Road to the train station and then get out to it by train and then the short walk in the town centre in Walsall to the school.Also there are the considerable problems getting to New Street Station to drop off and pick up by car at all times of the day due to the traffic around it and as I have done on many occasions.

If its areas to the South of Birmingham then I can understand your logic. Getting by bus to the train station and then by train to Walsall will involve some long journeys.

I'm not too far from the m6 it's just I don't want to be trapped on the m6 coming bk into brum in the mornings as I have work at 9 some days. This is why i was considering the greenbus. I can drop daughter to handsworth which is 10-15 mins drive then daughter gets bus staight to school. When she is more confident can get train from witton and not new st.

If its Aston your most sensilble and fastest route would be the X51 from any of its stops on the A34 and you would find that to be the closest to you and then a short walk about 6 or 7 minutes to the school.I would suggest you do that on the open day together.Many girls from the school already use this route.Its faster than any car journey with the priority the buses get on the route.

Good luck whatever you decide.
