We got the 5th, so not in same form!
I got the Blazer from T and C. Did you get it big? Mine son is quite stocky so to get the chest to fit and a bit spare, the sleeves and body are a bit long, hope no one laughs at him. Going to sort the rest out on the 5th. Did you buy the socks, mouthguard and planner protector???? I understand the T and C blazers are better quality than the others, thats what I have been told anyway.
Re the buses. There are a few. Travel Master run the one from Parrs Wood at 7.30 ish. There is also one that goes from Green End in Burnage a bit earlier run by Laintons (also called Ashalls- confusing). The Loreto bus can also be used and that goes from Stockport right through Heatons and then the same from there. Drops off at Loreto only, but I suppose could walk. My son has refused to get on this one though as 'full of girls'!!!
Don't think there is an issue re space on the buses, but I suppose we will wait and see.
You can pay as you go or buy a (System 7? ) pass but not the Stage coach or Magic Bus 7 day ticket. I don't think difference in either cost but I think you can use System 7 at weekends.
Here is link to bus details website and time table http://www.gmpte.com/upload/library/Tra ... 091009.pdf
I think these are awarded periodically so we should check before term end in case they have changed.
I wouldn't be surprised if they changed the date, they let the kids go home early at 2.30 today
Anyway hope this helps. I'm still a bit confused by all the buses and the train is also an option for us, but going to see how the bus goes first. I'm hoping he will make some friends on the bus as he doesn't know anyone at school.
Sure it will all work out though- too late to worry
