Our son got a place in Sir Thomas Rich's from September 2013 , is there anyone from around Stonehouse wanting to car share?

We live in the Stroud area and ruled tommies out due to the travelling. Most go to marling for obvious reasons, Crypt is reasonably easy to get to and there are enough students to make a bus worthwhile to run to Pates. The location of Tommies from Stroud/Stonehouse will put most off. The traffic through Gloucester everyday is horrendous!

I have now seen on your other post why you are going to tommies. Did you get a reply from Crypt? It's so much easier to get to.

My child failed the in year admission test at Marling! STR offered him a place from result he took at Pate. I was going to appeal to Marling but decided not to. Not too bad if use the M5 which takes under half an hour to get to the school. I am looking for parent wanting to car share or taxi share. Taxi company said will cost £10 daily, it worked out £2.50 per child, maximum 4 children. I think its reasonable enough. Just hope there are enough children from Stonehouse area will consider.

Looked into the coach service from Stroud to STR. Not sure if I want to commit to pay for the whole year. My child loved after school activities, there will be extra cost for transport! I think I will have to be a taxi driver for another 3 years at least. When he is old enough to get the bus............

Did not hear from Crypt. Took the offer from STR after reading about the school in details. My son likes the idea there is Japanses club :)

Well done to you and DS for getting to Tommies, an excellent school. I do though think you will struggle to find others who attend from the area. Too many other similar alternatives which are easier to get to. You will struggle to get there in 30 minutes in the rush hour.

Thanks Dr Watson, we currently car share but this may be an option for next year.
