Hi, are there any parents on this forum who have or will have a DD travelling from Thurrock to WHSG or SHSG? I would like to know what the travel options are. So far I've found out that Amber coaches go to WHSG and transport to SHSG would be by C2C train - to Southend East station and then a 10/15 min walk to the school.
We live in Orsett, so am especially keen to hear from any families near to us!
WHSG is also c2c - to Chalkwell. The walk is about ten minutes longer than the walk to SHSG from Southend East and much more hilly, but lots of Westcliff and Tommy More pupils do it. Just make sure your DD knows how to cross the road safely, as some of us local residents have developed a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to secondary school children too lazy to walk ten metres to the nearest pedestrian crossing suddenly launching themselves out into the road
Have you looked at the sticky at the top of the Essex section re discount rail travel to the grammar schools?
