I wonder if anyone has advice or experience of transport to Reading school. We live in the Wargrave/Twyford area and from what I have seen the only options available are bus or train. I'm concerned this would be a little too much for my DS to try straight away so would probably need to drive in (however I also have another child to take to primary school in opposite direction!) Has anyone else had experience of driving in/ or travels from my area/ or experience of their own children travelling in by bus/train? Would love to hear your thoughts
As a Year 7 Reading School parent, I would like to share some experience that we are seeing among us. Most of the parents did (either Kendrick or Reading school) a few dry runs on the expected travel route during summer holidays time (we didn't do that though). But then once the school started, some parents accompanied the kids on the way to school and back for first few days. That ironed out mistakes like getting down in the wrong bus stop etc.
I would suggest that if your DC is going to take the train eventually then kindly travel with him atleast once in that route once the school starts to get the actual feel of the route (as during summer the transports are much quieter as you can appreciate).
I fully agree with Tinkers, though in Year 6 the kids are a bit immature but once they start travelling in the public transport, they very quickly get the hang of it and then become very comfortable in it. They get to chat with friends also on the way to school and back and this they just love.
