Hi,
Not sure if there is already a post up here already about this, but does anybody know if there is a special bus service to Chelmsford from anywhere in Redbridge or is it a case of using the tube and train?

Thanks in advance.!

Hi Salaam! I can't answer your question, but as a mother of a yr 5 dd, I am just wondering why you would travel to Chelmsford and not use Woodford County Girls grammar. Is Chelmsford a better school, or easier to get into?

I think there's a coach to Chelmsford from Newbury park tube station. I know someone who attends KEG that uses the coach

Train from Stratford to Chelmsford - CCHS only a few minutes' walk from the railway station - takes just under half an hour, so under an hour by public transport, depending on how easy it is for your DD to get to Stratford. Using Newbury Park as a starting point:

I don't know how the cost would compare with a private coach, but public transport does give a lot more flexibility, scope to participate in extra-curricular activities etc. Lots of DC use the train to get to the Chelmsford / Southend / Westcliff schools; it's all quite companionable.
