Thank you for the responses. We are looking at HBG for our DS who is currently in Yr 4 and doing well academically. As we live mid-way between Dudley and Wolverhampton, we have to look carefully at travelling times and HBG seems to be the school with the most feasible journey time, without it becoming stressful for him.
I'd be interested to hear from anyone living in this area, which grammar schools you have considered?
That sounds like Sedgley to me.....Me too
Have DS1 at KEFW and DS2 at Adams'. The Green Bus to KEFW is longer than I would like but the choice in this area is very limited for good free schools.
DS2 catches bus from Compton Road to Adams' at 0750 and is in school for 0825.
Also looked at Wolverhampton Grammar (not worth the fee in my opinion), Oldswinford Hospital (day pupils are in minority) and Queen Mary Grammar in Walsall (commute just too long and difficult). Also Aston (dismissed it as soon as saw it) and Bishop Vesey. Both are commutable from Coseley station - 0724 from Coseley goes through to Sutton.
DS2 friend from primary in Sedgely attends Handsworth, although not sure how he gets there.
