This is the cheapest method of bus travel for school children if you are Kent based.

£280 or thereabouts for the year.


Orpington is in the London Borough of Bromley, not Kent CC, though?

Non-Kent residents

If your child goes to school in Kent but you're not a Kent resident they can't get a young person's travel pass. Please contact your local council.



Now TM this is an age old local debate :lol: and some of the outskirts still come under Kent. People refer to Orpington as the general area as others may not have heard of the actual village, so it will depend on OP's actual address which is why I said "if you are Kent based" :wink:

Thanks TM and all for responding.

We are based at Orpington so it;s outside of Kent. We put WoK higher on CAF due to league ranking however DD didn;t get it in first round. After getting WGGS, we spoke to few WGGS parents / teachers and seems promising...of course, all have their own selection critiera ..

For WoK, DD got tonbridge site and you are correct that we need to see how she will commute for off school activities..

Tand, for your dd the WOK Tonbridge site is great, straight through on the train (about 20 /25 minutes) and then walk to school, and there will be droves of girls doing the same walk. A very flexible and independent journey for her, depending, of course on how far you are from Orpington station.

Just to throw something else into the mix ... we've just had an offer from WoK and were told that sites weren't allocated until you sent back your acceptance. Also that there is a long waiting list for the Tonbridge site. Are you sure that you have Tonbridge? It might be worth planning for Sevenoaks as well.
