Hope you all have got your choice of ur school.

there are children who commute from Bristol, it is a long way though. As I recall from previous threads, some do car share, some go on the train. Shs is walking distance from the station and there are quite a few who walk up the hill together.

Try contacting the school (maybe not this week as they will be very busy) and see if they will put you in touch with other families who already do the same.

Remember, there are no trains to Stroud from Bristol without changing at Gloucester or Swindon. It's a nuisance for commuters going the other way as well. [just off to drive DD to BFI course at the Watershed].

It's an awful journey going the other way (as an adult).

I'd suggest moving house!

thanks Steppemum and ladies. I will check with school. Fingers crossed there are more girls going and there is a chance to get some company for my DD.
Moving house - :-(

Good luck Allzwell, to your DD in her new school. Hope you find a doable option for travel.

I wondered what experience parents have of travel from Cheltenham to Stroud High for their DDs. My DD is year 5 so I have a few months to consider our choices but thought I'd look ahead.
