I would not have considered schools for them that would have taken an hour to get to! .
It is this point that got me thinking. I read posts on here frowning upon parents who put their DC through long journey times and the assumption is that the DC is being sent to a school many miles away when this may not be the case. We had no choice but to send our DS to this school and it is the second closest secondary to where we live and there is no other transport.
Goodheart, half of the time seems to be taken up going between the two schools but no idea how many stops there are between them, they are only a mile apart so surely there shouldn't be that many, if any! as DC are more than capable of walking one mile. My others walk further than that to get to their schools.
