transport considerations (seeking advice for long journeys)

Post by Etienne »

Welcome to the forum!

Before seeking advice with what looks like being a lengthy journey, please consider the following questions:

1. Have you looked at the school to satisfy yourself that it really is the right school for your child and really will be worth the journey?

2. Have you checked the Admissions Policy to assess your child's chance of getting a place?

3. Have you googled the journey and checked the options for public transport?

4. Have you tried the journey for yourself?

5. Have you considered whether the journey is workable for your child for 7 years?

6. Have you taken into account the distance when considering after-school clubs, evening and weekend events and friendships?
