Could anyone help me with details of coaches that run from Goodmayes areas to Colchester County High School for Girls please?
Ninety miles a day
. Mainly using the Essex A road which, according to Essex Police, accounts for 25% of all road accidents in the county. Five days a week, nine months of the year, including those when there is snow or fog (and it was pretty darn hazy at 7.30am on September 21st this year, around the Chelmsford section, by the way).
No after school activities. No hanging out in town with new classmates. A ninety mile round trip for you for every parents evening. Or to pick your DD up early if she is taken ill at school. To drop her off for / pick her up from school trips.
But don't let me put you off. If you search through posts from round about last March, I'm sure you will find some from a forum member who was intending to send their DD to ColCHS from the East London / Ilford ('statement', 'not to invite discussion').
Colchester is an ancient and interesting town and there are many nice places to live in and around it. I am just an occasional visitor, but there are several Colchester folk on here who will be able to suggest affordable areas within sensible travelling distance of the grammar schools.
