Moving home/school?

We are moving further away from DS current school and the long journey will make the school run a long nightmare on the bus with him and my other children.

I wanted to know, can I get transport for him to attend the same school (is there a minimum distance you have to live?) or can I push for him to get a place quickly in a school closer to home?

I had thought about home schooling while I waited for a place in a local school but think this will be too disruptive for DS as he does not adapt well to change and is better with the formal structure of a school environment.

He already has a statement with his school and is awaiting assessment for Dx of Aspergers/ASD.

Thank you in advance for any advice x
