Our DS has a place at the blue coat school in harborne, button's nursery from Jan 2017. We currently live in Sutton Coldfield. We're wondering:
A) what is the school run like from SC on an ordinary day?
B) should we move to harborne? That is, is the commute going to make life painful?

Have tweeted for you, LittleZeusy. Hopefully someone with first-hand experience will be along soon.

That's a nasty commute - what time of day would you be travelling across the centre? And which side of Sutton are you?

We live in Walmley just off Wylde Green road on the estate built on New Hall Country Park. Times: we need to get there for 8.30am and pick up at 1pm initially then 3.15pm later on...

Ah I'm right by you but more towards Boldmere.

At least you are the right side of town. I think prob 30 - 40 min for either pick up. I think an hour in the morning, at least sad

Okay...noted. I think we're moving further South for sure - I'm not spending my life in traffic! smile We'll retire up here in 30 odd years' time smile
