Thinking of moving to Bournemouth but due to work closer to Winchester wondering if there are buses to the school outside of Bournemouth and how far they cover.

Have you looked at the school travel page on their website. There is list of the bus services there :)
Did you get a high score on the 11+
Does anyone know the out of catchment score yet?

Looking at your list, there are buses from Lymington, Highcliffe and Ferndown etc in the New Forest. Further than those places would be a fair way away to be honest. My daughters get the bus from the Christchurch area which is nearer than the above, and that takes 45 mins - to give you an idea of the time your daughter could potentially be spending on a bus. Hope that helps. X

Thank you this is really useful , looks like moving closer is best for DD. We have few other options on the table but if we get allocation for this then it makes sense to move to Bournemouth based on this feedback.

Also can you plz give me some feedback on the school?

What's the class size and what are the schools strong subjects?

How good is the support for kids needing help in certain subject?

Are the teachers subject matter experts and nice to pupils?

Does the school focus on just acedamics or leadership and rounded ness ..ectetc?

Did you not look at the school at all before you entered your daughter for the test?
