There is also a number 15 bus (Regal Busways) that leaves Wickford train station at 7.40 am and stops outside CCHS (just opposite KEGS) about 8.30am. It picks up again outside CCHS at 3.50pm (it may also stop outside KEGS but I'm not sure - I can check if you like) and returns to Wickford about 4.37pm. It also picks up/drops off at the Swan pub at the end of Swan Lane in Wickford. Several girls catch it to go to CCHS and at least a couple of KEGS boys catch it.
If your son has a club after school, he can walk down to the bus station and catch the number 15 or 14 there to Wickford. The bus runs every hour, but only stops ouside the schools at the times I've mentioned. At other times, it stops at the bus station.
The bus has the advantage that it is about half the price of the train (if I remember correctly) and he won't have to walk up from the station. If he does take the train, it's only a ten minute walk to/from the station.
Hope this helps.
Thanks very much, this is really helpful. I must admit I do prefer the idea of him getting the bus while he's still 'little'
the train would be a great option as he gets older.
