We're looking at KES Stratford but live in Solihull - does anyone's dc commute this distance - how do they cope, train or car travel etc etc. I'm just thinking it might get a bit too much over 7 years for my dc??
My dd is 3 weeks into SGGS and I have to be honest that at the moment she is tired, she catches the 7.48 from Whitlocks End to Stratford and gets back at 17.00 ( also a 10 minute drive each way ), which is a long day but little different time wise to if she had gone to Camp Hill via the green bus. There is also a school bus that goes from Dorridge to Stratford but again the timings are similar.
At the moment I am unable to say hand on heart if it's the commute or just going to senior school and being made to work that is making her tired. I think the best thing I am seeing so far is that she is developing a work ethic, time management and does really enjoy the school.
Her friends older sister did seven years of the commute so it is possible.
Ask me again in a few months.
