Hi, is anyone aware for transport arrangements from Harlow to Colchester Girls High School. I am not able to find any school coaches on this route. Thanks

Did your DD take the exam for CCHS as well? Chelmsford is only 20 miles from Harlow, vs over 40 to ColCHS and there is a direct public bus route.

Why would you do that to a child?! I hate driving to Harlow for work it's a horrendous journey from colchester. Move house or choose a different school.

40 miles to school every day?????????????

A round trip of 80 miles every day, five days a week for seven years?

Of course the school is not going to arrange a school coach to enable students to come from 40 miles away.

Why would you apply for a school so far away unless you were planning to move?

What are your other options?

I used to work in Harlow, and my goodness, those roundabouts alone make journey times 3 times as long.....and then you have the traffic jams. :shock:
