what is the nearest station to Westcliff schools?
Chalkwell on c2c (about 20 minute walk) or Southend Victoria on the Greater Anglia line, then catch a bus from the interchange outside the station (21 / 29 stops outside the school). The walk from Chalkwell is quite a lot of uphill on the way to school but you can stop off at the Co-Op for sustenance on the way and looking on the bright side, the walk back is mainly downhill
. Plus, c2c is cheaper, so if you are anywhere near Upminster or a district line tube station, this would be your most cost-effective option (actually,I'm not sure that Chalkwell may not be the only option for the Westcliff schools, come to think of it - you can check on the website http://public.greenrailtravel.co.uk/
