There are issues with out-of-school socialisation at all the Bucks Grammars, but CGS is possibly better off than most because of the key transport artery of the Met Line for many pupils. Rural bus services in areas like Aylesbury & Wycombe really don't compare well!
Son number one and I have been having interesting conversations this week, as to whether it is better to walk long distances in the chilterns to reach appropriate bus stops, or to cycle and potentially be seen either going silly slow up long steep hills or even, perish the thought, push and risk being spotted doing so. He has opted for silly slow, against my nagging as both a parent and a driver who regularly gets caught behind the wallies who refuse to admit defeat.
He does love being able to cycle to his friends houses though, the freedom of a text message followed by jumping on his bike ten minutes later to meet up, is something he would hate to give up, even though lazy wotsit does not do it nearly enough for my liking.
