Welcome to the forum & I hope your DD is happy at Burnham Grammar. If you have a place it might be a little late to start thinking about how to get there. There won't be a school mini bus, it is a Buckinghamshire school so they don't need to provide transport to Hounslow. There may be privately arranged transport - you could ask the school. They may be able to put you in touch with other parents from nearby.

As the school website says that it is a ten minute walk away from Burnham railway station, perhaps a bus to your nearest station on the line from Paddington to Burnham, then the train? Had you been led to believe that the school / Bucks CC did provide transport?

The school were certainly inviting the 2016 year 7s to hand in details if they were looking for car shares, without taking responsibility for any of it, so you may be able to link in to this. I think it would take a bus & then train from Hounslow and then a 10 minute walk from the station (check Google maps). My comment was more that it might have been an idea to work out transport before applying to the school. It is quite a long journey to do for 6 years, with dreadful traffic. Mind you, people attempt much worse & I'm sure there are a few travelling from your area.
