Hi All AGS DP's,

I thought I'd start this thread to see if any Warwick DP's would like to lift share on days when their DC have after school clubs. My DS has just started in Year 8 at AGS and despite asking him on numerous occasions to mention it to his "friends/ mates/ buddies" on the bus he hasn't bothered!

I know that clubs haven't started yet, but I like to be organised :wink:

Wow - which bus does he get, Miss Marple? We had to discount AGS last year as the logistics seemed impossible! DD has just gone into year 5 and says she'll only sit next year if she can go to Alcester, but I thought it impossible from Warwick :?

There are two buses from Warwick - 139 from Hatton Park, which my DS takes and I think it's the 140 from Barford.

Hmmm, yes they were the only 2 routes I could find, both requiring a v early car journey from Warwick to catch them :(

If you can drive (I know not possible for all but maybe pool share as OP mentioned) then it's an easy journey, coming through claverdon and wootton wawen you can be there in 20-25 mins

Where abouts do you live JD?

I leave at around 7.10am to drive to Hatton Park, so that DS can be there in time for the 7.28am bus. I have to admit, the early mornings were difficult in the beginning but DS has coped brilliantly. To put the times into perspective, the bus to the local comp leaves about 15minutes later.

Despite the longer days DS still put his name down for after school clubs last year. Unfortunately, picking him up has sometimes clashed with after school activities of my other DC. But other than that DS has had a great year.

And there's my problem - I need my DCs to be able to get themselves to school and back under their own steam, be it by bus or legs ...

Never mind, thought for a moment there might be another option. Thanks Miss Marple, although it doesn't help you with your lift share question ...

That's a really early start to get to AGS from Warwick - we had discounted it for my DD who has just started in Year 7 at SGGS. However, we may consider it for our DS who is in Year 5 now as the options for boys in the Southern region otherwise are limited.

If we are fortunate enough to be in a position to consider AGS for our DS, we would certainly be interested in a car share to Alcester and back each day. I could drive 2 days a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Would any other parents considering AGS be interested in a lift share arrangement in the future?

Sorry that doesn't help you now, Miss Marple, but maybe in a couple of years time!?

Hello. My DD has just been offered a place at AGS and we live in Warwick Gates. Hopefully she'll get a school bus place through the Vacant Seat Scheme, but if not I am very open to a car share arrangement. Anyone else open to it? Open to helping others around clubs etc as well. Let me know?
