Given that it suits you bettee as a family, was there a reason that you didn't visit the Chelmsford school? And does that reasoning not still stand?

If your DD has her heart set on Colchester then you could split the difference and live somewhere like Kelvedon which has a reasonable bus service to Colchester and is on the mainline through Chelmsford to London.
Depending on exactly where you live, it could be no longer in total commute time.

Unless I’m mistaken, you’d consider sending your daughter to a school which neither of you have visited in person?

And on a direct line to Ipswich to buy uniform. Unless CCHSG has found a more local supplier now?

OP, where did your DD sit tha CEM exam, if not in Chelmsford?

To be honest, we decide to make her sit Chelmsford in last moment and we were not sure weather she will clear it or not, having said that we still not sure as her score is 115 OOC. yes i agree we haven't seen the school but we having been trying to find information from our know sources, if i ask you to provide the rating for both schools on scale of 10 what would be your rating? we are trying to collect as much info as we can so that we are confident of school .

Hi Jain236 - Both schools are very good, however longer term I would consider the most convenient school for the whole family. In my view a long commute makes children tired and less productive. Can I ask what CSSE standardised score your daughter got?
