He'd have at least an hours journey by bus and train. It's a 24 mile round trip. Just thinking in the winter, when it's dark it won't be too pleasant for him. He's started to worry about it. We did do a few trial runs on the train months ago. But recently he's started to become anxious about it. I've written to the 'Admissions Department' to explain the situation. It does say on the form they won't 'change the preference list' unless there is an exceptional change of circumstances. I don't want to change a choice, just remove one. X
That is quite a trek - my kids schools are only about 5-6 miles away- just the bus goes a long way round. We can do the journey by car in 15-20 mins which is great for emergencies which is great also means DD can do her after school clubs etc and I can collect easily. Hope you can change it.
