A couple of my son’s friends travel from Gravesend to Dartford Grammar. Quite simply their parents think Dartford Grammar is better than Gravesend Grammar and so have committed their sons to a 7 year commute to school, when they could quite easily walk to Gravesend Grammar. One boy resents having to travel and the other doesn’t!

Have you visited both schools? Which did you prefer? Can you afford the train fare for 7 years? There are buses from Gravesend town centre to Dartford town centre but I’m sure you know that the morning traffic is awful in the area.

See when the open days are and visit both schools. Then you get a ‘feel’ for which school you prefer.

A grammar is a grammar and a bright motivated kid will do well whichever one you send them to. I would always go for the easier commute, with the added bonus of living near friends and having more time to get homework out of the way before dinner. Life is going to be disciplined and hard enough for them, without adding an hour or two of commuting to their lives every single day.
