My daughter gets a bus from Benfleet station to WHSG. If your daughter needs to travel by train then SHSG would probably be a better choice as you can walk from the station to the school, lots of girls do this. WHSG is not really near the station although i am aware that some children walk from the station(chalkwell I think) to the school, but it takes about 25 minutes!! Are there no direct bus routes from laindon to Westcliff then?
Just found out that there is a bus from Basildon bus station that runs to WHSG number 825 first group leaves at 7am gets there at 8.19am then picks up at WHSG at 1555 gets back to Basildon bus station at 17.00
Your child would just have to get to Basildon from Laindon in the morning, would that be an option!? hope this helps.
