I don't know your area but here is what Terri posted a few years back. The thread is called Kendrick Grammar 11+ Exams 2009 advice please. viewtopic.php?t=10212#p112145
'The train from Basingstoke to Reading has children from Kendrick, Abbey, Elvian, St Jo's, blue Coats and Reading boys.It stops at Bramley , Mortimer, Reading West and Reading and they get on and off at each stop.
The train is very quiet as it is a only travels from Basingstoke to Reading and then back again and the service is reliable and safe.If they want they can catch a bus to Kendrick from Reading Station or walk (about 12 minutes).
Kendrick girls are back in Basingstoke by about 4pm, so it is really do-able.'
