I'll also have to fund DSs travel for sixth form, but as he catches the train it's rather a bit more than the £520.
Even though he will be a student we'll still have to pay adult prices for his train journey. Working it out at today's fares it will be about £1300 a year.
In fact since I found out last week I've been contemplating whether I should take it to the powers that be and start some sort of campaign, as it seems very unfair to expect students to have to pay adult fares.
Some rail companies do subsidised fares for students, but unfortunately Southeastern don't.
Can your son get a Student Railcard to reduce the cost? Or do they only work off peak?
I'll join your campaign SSM. I will have two on the train by September and potentially a third in a few years time. The cost of getting them to school in the 6th form is making my eyes water. It is bad enough having to pay for my second child ( year 7) to get to our nearest GS on the train from September. I had assumed until I read this thread that children's fares applied until children left school......
